      * Make it so that recursive newtype declarations don't send
        GHC into an infinite loop.
      	newtype T = MkT T
        This happened because Type.repType looked throught newtypes,
        and that never stopped!  Now TcTyDecls.mkNewTyConRep does the job
        more carefully, and the result is cached in the TyCon itself.
      * Improve the handling of type signatures & pragmas.  Previously a
        mis-placed (say) SPECIALISE instance pragmas could be silently
      Both these changes involved moving quite a lot of stuff between modules.

      Fixing a couple of problems with Quantified identifiers.
      (1) The string building routine for Qid's was not using
          the new abstraction for showing names. The old abstraction
          worked most of the time in the new system, so was only
          getting tickled sometimes.
      (2) Fixing the local module that top level expressions
          evaluate in. By importing quantified Prelude,
          this allows top level expressions like Prelude.take
      And a trivial Makefile change.

      Numerous changes in the RTS to get GUM-4.06 working (currently works with
      parfib-ish programs). Most changes are isolated in the rts/parallel dir.
        The most important changes are a rewrite of the (un-)packing code (Pack.c)
        and changes in LAGA, GALA table operations (Global.c) expecially in
        rebuilding the tables during GC.
        Minor changes in Schedule.c, GC.c (interface to par specific root marking
        and evacuation), and lots of additions to Sanity.c (surprise ;-)
        Main.c change for startup: I use a new function rts_evalNothing to
        start non-main-PEs in a PAR || SMP setup (RtsAPI.c)
        Updated GranSim macros in PrimOps.h.
        Few changes in PrelHandle.c etc replacing ForeignObj by Addr in a PAR
        setup (we still don't support ForeignObjs or WeakPtrs in GUM).
        Typically use
          #define FILE_OBJECT	    Addr
        when dealing with files.
        Same as above (in Foreign(Obj).lhs, Weak.lhs, IOExts.lhs etc).

      * Remove the unnecessary CPR parameter to mkUnfolding and friends
      * Make sure that even trivial wrappers have a __inline__
        (this was causing lots of 'substWorker' DEBUG messages)
      * Nuke demand info when the unfolding is a value
        (see notes with IdInfo.setUnfoldingInfo)
      * Add an update-in-place test to the 'interesting context'
        predicate in SimplUtils.

      Support AP_UPDs/PAPs larger than a block in size.  It turned out not
      to be too hard to do this.  This fixes George Russell's bug ("hsc:
      fatal error: scavenge: stack frame").

      Add an ASSERT to catch a known bug: when allocating an AP_UPD in
      raiseAsync, if the object is larger than a block in size then all
      sorts of things can go wrong.

      update for extra parameter to startupHaskell().

      HEADS UP!!!
      change the type of startupHaskell():
         void startupHaskell  ( int argc, char *argv[], void *init_root );
      the extra parameter is a pointer to the initialisation function for
      the root module in the program.  eg., Main.c now passes __init_Main for
      this parameter.  It can be left as NULL if there is no root module.
      This interface may need to be revised, since in some circumstances
      there may be more than one "root module".
      Sigbjorn: H/Direct will need some changes to stay in sync here.

      Fixing bug with import privileged clashing with import hidden.
      This caused a rather nasty name-leak, where catch from the prelude
      was being given the type of catch from Exceptions.
      Now, when you use import privileged Prelude (...) you also
      need to do import Prelude, allowing you the option of
      import Prelude hiding (...).
      A bucket load of wibbles will follow in various libraries,
      implementing this restriction.

      Fix a bug in import listing in interface files that meant we lost track of
      interface files.  This fixes the problem that led Sven to add lots of
      import PprType() decls.  I've removed them all again!

      Improve the error messages given when a definition isn't polymorphic enough.
      In paticular, for this program:
          let v = runST (newSTRef True)
          runST (readSTRef v)
      we get the message
          Inferred type is less polymorphic than expected
      	Quantified type variable `s' escapes
      	It is reachable from the type variable(s) `a'
      	  which are free in the signature
          Signature type:     forall s. ST s a

      Adding a bunch of `import PprType ()' to make 4.07 compile itself.
      Strangely enough, compilation with 4.06 worked without these, so
      this is probably only fighting the symptoms of something deeper,
      and somebody should have a look at it. But for now, I simply need
      a bootstrapping 4.07...
