And in fact the official Haskell'98 libraries are covered by an even  
more permissive license: that of the Language Report.

"The authors intend this Report to belong to the entire Haskell  
community, and so we grant permission to copy and distribute it for  
any purpose, provided that it is reproduced in its entirety, including  
this Notice. Modified versions of this Report may also be copied and  
distributed for any purpose, provided that the modified version is  
clearly presented as such, and that it does not claim to be a  
definition of the language Haskell 98."
