Fellow GHC hackers (esp IAN)
I've just pushed this big patch, as you'll see

| * Completely new treatment of INLINE pragmas (big patch)
| This is a major patch, which changes the way INLINE pragmas work.
| Although lots of files are touched, the net is only +21 lines of
| code -- and I bet that most of those are comments!
| HEADS UP: interface file format has changed, so you'll need to
| recompile everything.
It's been in my tree for months, and I really wanted to get it out of my hair before I go to India tomorrow. I have spend much of this week working on it.
However, *naughtily* I have run out of time without fixing two validation failures:
random1283 fails inexplicably. Must be investigated, but no time now.
break018 produces output in different order. I suspect this is ok
but can't be sure
IAN: could you make these into expect-brokens or something so they don't mess up
people's validation runs? But in some way that they don't slip off the radar (tickets?).
Sorry about leaving this not quite done; ran out of time.
