Talking about good timing - I was just finishing my post on code testing in Haskell when your 
announcement came up, so your library made it as a last minute news :) I never used golden 
approach to testing but it is good to know that it exists. 

*I* think that it might be a good idea to separete your library into two parts: the golden 
functionality itself and test-framework provider. Right now it seems impossible to use your 
library outside of test-framework. For me that's not a big deal, cause I use test-framework 
anyway, but I suspect you could get more users that way.

Well, I'm already typing Test.Framework.Providers.QuickCheck2, so that's not a big deal really :)
