For those of you not reading the other thread, you can now do the following:

* cabal update
* cabal install wai-handler-devel # get version 0.2.1
* cabal install yesod # get version 0.7.2, no need for -fproduction anymore

Now running devel-server.hs will give you instructions on how to run
the wai-handler-devel executable properly.
