I've just tested it and seems to work nicely, thanks.

What ever happened to the experimental cocoa frontend? I'm sure a lot
of Haskell hackers use OSX :)

Some features I would love to see in Yi (I will add them to the tracker).

* Automatic generation of module header templates (i.e. author, module
name, license ... ) based on the project's Cabal file
* Integration with darcs.
* Automatic identifier completion and on-the-fly checking of code
(e.g. type-checking) and haddock markup.
