The package doesn't build with haskell-src-exts version 1.5.1 (the
latest version on Hackage). It would be good to either make it build
with HSE 1.5.1 or else put a maximum version of HSE in your .cabal
file so that Cabal can select a lower version of HSE if available.

Looks like an interesting package; I'm looking forward to trying it out!
