Great Work!

A few questions:

How will the Library Infrastructure itself be distributed?
Will it be distributed separately? Or can it be included with Haskell

For Mac OS X, I'd prefer to put it into Apple's standard directory for 
preferences files, which is /Library/Preferences. Putting it in /etc/ 
is slightly subotimal because it's only accessible via the command 
line, not via Apple's nice GUI.
As long as there's nothing in the Setup.lhs scripts that depends on the 
exact path, everything is fine.
