FWIW: I have tried to test the new code, but can't, because I'm getting
this when I run ghci -package unix:

Loading package base-1.0 ... linking ... done.
Loading package unix-1.0 ... linking ... ghc-6.4.2:
/tmp/lib/unix-1.0/ghc-6.4.2/HSunix-1.0.o: unknown symbol `lstat'
ghc-6.4.2: unable to load package `unix-1.0'

This is on GHC 6.4.2, so I'm not sure what's going on.
