waiting a bit won't hurt. I will also try to write a blog post or two about
it, providing some kind of tutorial. But it's definitely a domain that
would be nice to have covered by HP at some point.

everything went pretty smoothly:
http://hackage.haskell.org/package/filemanip -- this would only bring
unix-compat in. Maybe could be considered at some point too? Plus, it has
the 'bos' guarantee.
