Thanks for the TypeCompose>=0.3 tip. I've fixed my local Reactive.cabal and

Urg. I didn't realize that 'forever' isn't in 6.2. You can use the 6.8def:
-- | @'forever' act@ repeats the action infinitely.
forever :: (Monad m) => m a -> m ()
forever a = a >> forever a
I'm wondering how hard to try to get these libs to work with both 6.6 and
6.8. My hope has been that people will switch to 6.8, but perhaps there are
obstacles I don't know about. Is there something that keeps you from
