Man, that's at least two orders of magnitude larger than anything I've 
ever written in my entire life! And to think that's just the RTS - the 
part of GHC that most people don't neven notice. ;-)

Did you really write all that code single-handedly?

Also... Those old release notes are some hard-core nostalga. ;-) "At 
least 32 MB of RAM"... that's special. As is the list of "new" features 
in GHC. (Exceptions. Ooo!)
