We've done it!

274 users have uploaded 3161 versions of 1000 packages. 

Thanks everyone who has written a library or tool or app and released
it, for making hackage and cabal a success!

This has gone further, perhaps more than anything else, towards making
it possible to use Haskell in industry.

The lucky 1000th package is:

    threadPool: Runs other programs in the manner of a thread pool

    Takes a single, optional argument which is the number of threads
    (the default is three). Give it the commands to run, one per line,
    through standard input. 

    Author  Brian Jaress

Now, onto 10k libraries!
