Could anyone confirm the following claims?
* base-184.108.40.206 (shipped with GHC 6.10.1) is supposed to be backwards
compatible with base-220.127.116.11 (shipped with GHC 6.8.3) ...
* ... but it isn't! (For example, the Arrow class from Control.Arrow
is a subclass of Category from Control.Category in base-18.104.22.168, but
not in base-22.214.171.124.)
Do we know of any similar issues? What's the recommended workaround
when shipping code that is to support both GHC 6.8.* and GHC 6.10.*?)
