| 6.10.2 this would not have been a problem.
I talked to Ian about this yesterday. I agree it was rude to remove it in a patch-level release.
We hope that someone at this weekend's will put up a binary distribution of 'time' for GHC 6.10.2. If they don't, we'll re-roll the 6.10.2 bundle (on Windows only) including time again, so that you can re-download.
We are trying hard to get out of the library distribution business, in favour of the Haskell Platform, for which there should be binary installers. I very very very much hope that the HP is firmly online by the time we get to 6.12.
