Will this

   - Initial Unicode support - the Char type is now 31 bit

cause me a problem?

I am sending protocol elements via a socket. I represent these as [Word8]. I had assumed that when I want to send something I do

hPutStr (map (ord .word8ToInt) protocolElement)

essentially doing a type coercion. But this looks like bits actually get changed into something the respondent won't recognise.

Dominic.
