[Haskell] ANNOUNCE: silently-0.0.2 (thread safe and can capture output)

Silently has doubled in size with two new functions to capture the output of an IO action:

  capture :: IO a -> IO (String, a)
  hCapture :: Handle -> IO a -> IO (String, a)

All 4 functions now clean up any temp file even if there's an asynchronous exception but it still uses temp files behind-the-scenes; I'll get to that when I can in a week or so.


A big thanks to everyone who had comments and suggestions!
