Hi John,

IMHO, with medium sized projects which are not application software to 
be installed on a greater number of unknown systems, the problem 
described by you is less aggravating:

Hackage offers a fairly good track of version history and I for myself 
have adapted versions a good deal of times and found it - easy, to be 

Speaking about small and especially medium sized projects, I think agile 
development fits well this scope. Please do not forget this.
