Maybe it has gone unnoticed, but the main reason we made the compiler  
available, was to make it possible for others to experiment with its  
type extensions, its Grin based back-end and  to show the advantages  
(and disadvantages?) of generating large part of the compiler from an  
attribute grammar based descriptions.

If we had been interested in raising fierce discussions about n+k  
patterns or how and where cabal installs things, we could have easily  
achieved the same effect with much less effort.
