As far as I am aware, base-unicode-symbols only works on GHC 6.12 and
above. For Hoogle, which uses WAI, I deliberately try and work on GHC
version 6.10 as well - GHC 7 is only very just out, and a version
which is basically functional for most users has only been released in
the last week - making 6.10 effectively the release before last.
Excluding 6.10 for good reasons is fine, excluding it for a fairly
unnecessary dependency makes me sad.

Thanks, Neil
