[This discussion was started on the Haskell mailing list in response
to an announcement I made which you can read here


At issue is whether the JustHub Haskell distribution for Enterprise Linux
the hub hackage for sandboxing development projects and integrating multiple
tool chains is redundant because all of the functionality is covered by the
Nix Haskell distribution, allowing as they do multiple Nix Haskell releases
be deployed simultaneously.]

    al:  If this adds anything in terms of functionality that Nix doesn't
already provide,
    al:  then I would be interested to know. From having a quick look at
    al:  announcements, it's not quite clear though if it does.
