Right, so, let me make sure I understand this...

1. We sit down and pick a set of libraries that cover a useful range of 
subject areas, that are mature and stable, and that work well with each 
other. This is the "Haskell Platform".

2. For each OS, a team decides how best to deploy this set of libraries 
on that specific OS.

Is that the plan?
