Hi Eric,

warpDebug just prints out a debug log.

Your options for development are:
* compile manually with cabal-dev (that actually works)
* modify yesod devel or possibly the Shaker package to work with cabal-dev
* attempt to use wai-handler-devel with cabal-dev (Theoretically possible by
changing an environment variable, but doesn't seem to work)
* use cabal, not cabal-dev on a virtual machine (This is not as bad as it
sounds, actually the best option if you have a lot of RAM to spare on a fast

A better development environment (that works with cabal-dev) is on our TODO
