Time is an important library, it got unbundled from GHC, and it seems
Windows users can't install the time package!
C:\Neil\hoogle>cabal install time --global
[1 of 1] Compiling Main ( C:\Users\Neil\AppData\Local\Temp\time-1.1.
setup.exe: sh: runGenProcess: does not exist (No such file or directory)
cabal: Error: some packages failed to install:
time-188.8.131.52 failed during the configure step. The exception was:
exit: ExitFailure 1
The Glorious Glasgow Haskell Compilation System, version 6.10.2
My guess is that it would work if I installed mingw, but that it
hasn't been tested without. I consider this problem fatally serious -
we may have managed to make GHC 6.10.2 unuseable for many Windows
