I understand that with the proposed base package breakup , SYB will be
moved to a separate package. But I still don't know how this will reflect on
the development of the library. In particular:
1) Where is the source code going to be hosted? Here in Utrecht we currently
have a repository with several (cabalized) generic programming libraries,
SYB included. But maybe SYB will stay in the same repository as GHC?
2) Can development proceed independently of GHC, i.e. can a new version of
SYB be released without a new version of GHC?
3) How does the separation affect the automatic instance deriving mechanism?
