As far as i understood, the SYB3 is considered no longer necessary with GHC6.6
extensions. Being unnecessary doesn't make the packages based on it work, though.

Another example is hs-plugins ( It
still doesn't work with GHC6.6, as far as i know, and as such is simply
unusable, despite all its greatness.

The same goes to your compression library
(, which i couldn't build
with recent GHC under CYGWIN.

That is the point, i think, while FPS should be in the base, in a jurisdictional
way. It might install as a separate package, but it should be maintained as the
part of the base...
