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?
