Thanks Magnus.
I guess it means that the license of individual packages is what
that matters.
The platform on the whole does not have any single license.

In other words, I cannot just say that am using haskell platform but that I
have to say, I am using x,y and z libraries which in turn are using a, b, c
and d libraries.

Ouch! Apologies. Guess I was looking at all the wrong places or my
google-fu is embarrassingly bad.

Thanks again for the links!
