Yeah, core is a pretty overloaded term in haskell. Here I was definitly
thinking of Haskell Core, as in a subset of haskell' that is still pure
haskell and will compile via any haskell' compiler. I try to get in the
habit of alway saying the full haskell core, ghc core, or jhc core (is
there an nhc core?) but sometimes get sloppy.
