Thanks for doing this: it's great news for everyone who is on GHC

You're right - I'm probably as qualified as anyone! I've found that
if a Cabal build works for one person, it's pretty reliable for all
is one of the joys of Cabal and (to a lesser extent) the Haskell

I'm quite happy for you to upload updates to Cabal. I'll pull them next
week and make sure that they get merged to the wxHaskell darcs repo. If
there are any reports of issues with the uploaded version (which I
I'll look into them, so you're not taking on any long-term support

I have no strong preference - the only thing I want to be sure of is
that the 
darcs repo stays closely in sync with whatever is in Cabal. If you are
OK with
doing the upload, that's great. Otherwise I'll be very happy to do it
based on
your patches.
