I was giving this a try, and this soon hosed ghc (6.12.3):
* (starting from a pristine ghc, from a binary package)
* cabal install for containers-0.4.0.0 (the above package)
* then cabal install for some package that uses template-haskell
* then ghc-pkg check: There are problems in package ghc-6.12.3:
dependency "template-haskell-188.8.131.52-e9e9c63092746bd4a3f64cc37ddb1e06" doesn't
I seems template-haskell.cabal contains "containers"
(without any version constraints) as a dependency,
so "cabal install" goes to rebuild this
(since it prefers the fresh containers version).
this looks like
but not quite.
could "cabal install" (or "ghc-pkg register"?)
please please refuse to install a package that would break others
(especially, if "others = ghc").
what's the proper way to use containers-0.4 now?
(I was going to suggest "can you just put it on hackage"
but given the above, this would probably be a bad idea.)
I plug the new "containers" into a ghc source tree?
