Fully support. I think it could benefit from a slight clarification to
the documentation in createProcess, to help pattern-match safety

(aStdin,aStdout,aStderr,d) <- createProcess cp
isJust aStdin == (std_in == CreatePipe)

(and ditto for the out and err)

I have talked to Simon on IRC, and he said he'll add some kind of
clarification on this issue.

I am looking forward to using this library! All we need now is a
decent HTTP library...
