    Summary:
    This shims out fopen and sopen so that they use modern APIs under the hood
    along with namespaced paths.
    
    This lifts the MAX_PATH restrictions from Haskell programs and makes the new
    limit ~32k.
    
    There are only some slight caveats that have been documented.
    
    Some utilities have not been upgraded such as lndir, since all these things are
    different cabal packages I have been forced to copy the source in different places
    which is less than ideal. But it's the only way to keep sdist working.
    
    Test Plan: ./validate
