i definitely don't want to create packages just to add to my
application several C-defined functions. and moreover i think that it
will make using FFI in Haskell harder for novices. now it's rather
simple with ghc and i will be happy to preserve this simplicity. this
means "please preserve ability to specify include files and make this
uniform for all haskell'-compilers".

Best regards,
