No, I don't think so. It uses some extensions, but happstack-data
already does, so that shouldn't be a problem. We don't have a
releasable library yet, but when we do, it will have a versioned
binary implementation, just like happstack-data does now. Perhaps even
binary compatible with it, though I'm not sure about that.
