[Haskell-cafe] GHC TV station?

Hi Sylvester,

Could you please give an example of code that you think should be correct,
but is rejected by a recent GHC?
It is certainly annoying when code from a book on Haskell fails to parse.
But perhaps the cause is not so nefarious as a backwards incompatible
change in syntax.
