[Haskell-cafe] Some questions about Fudgets library

I wonder why there is no Fudgets package in Hackage.

I found this, but the fudgets link is broken:


Nevertheless, there is a cabalized package in the Fudgets homepage, so it's strange it's not in Hackage.

Also, is there an arrowized version of Fudgets? If not, why? Is there some fundamental reason that makes it impossible to port it to the arrows framework or simply nobody cared to port it? (Also, the license seems to not allow modifications.)

I'm trying to write a bittorrent client in Haskell. I decided to use arrows for it and took a look at Fudgets and Yampa. I haven't decided yet which one to use. Fudgets seems more suitable and I like it more, but the fact that it doesn't use the arrow notation and classes is a bit annoying.

I read that Fruit is more or less a mix of Fudgets and Yampa that uses arrows. Sadly, it's unmaintained, the web doesn't exist and it's not in Hackage. Is there any other Fudgets-like option?
