      unregister/describe: allow the package name to be given without the
      version, as long as it is unambiguous.
      
      Strange, I was sure I'd implemented expose/hide in here, but they're
      stubbed out.  Oh well.

      Further integration with the new package story.  GHC now supports
      pretty much everything in the package proposal.
      
        - GHC now works in terms of PackageIds (<pkg>-<version>) rather than
          just package names.  You can still specify package names without
          versions on the command line, as long as the name is unambiguous.
      
        - GHC understands hidden/exposed modules in a package, and will refuse
          to import a hidden module.  Also, the hidden/eposed status of packages
          is taken into account.
      
        - I had to remove the old package syntax from ghc-pkg, backwards
          compatibility isn't really practical.
      
        - All the package.conf.in files have been rewritten in the new syntax,
          and contain a complete list of modules in the package.  I've set all
          the versions to 1.0 for now - please check your package(s) and fix the
          version number & other info appropriately.
      
        - New options:
      
      	-hide-package P    sets the expose flag on package P to False
      	-ignore-package P  unregisters P for this compilation
      
      	For comparison, -package P sets the expose flag on package P
              to True, and also causes P to be linked in eagerly.
      
              -package-name is no longer officially supported.  Unofficially, it's
      	a synonym for -ignore-package, which has more or less the same effect
      	as -package-name used to.
      
      	Note that a package may be hidden and yet still be linked into
      	the program, by virtue of being a dependency of some other package.
      	To completely remove a package from the compiler's internal database,
              use -ignore-package.
      
      	The compiler will complain if any two packages in the
              transitive closure of exposed packages contain the same
              module.
      
      	You *must* use -ignore-package P when compiling modules for
              package P, if package P (or an older version of P) is already
              registered.  The compiler will helpfully complain if you don't.
      	The fptools build system does this.
      
         - Note: the Cabal library won't work yet.  It still thinks GHC uses
           the old package config syntax.
      
      Internal changes/cleanups:
      
         - The ModuleName type has gone away.  Modules are now just (a
           newtype of) FastStrings, and don't contain any package information.
           All the package-related knowledge is in DynFlags, which is passed
           down to where it is needed.
      
         - DynFlags manipulation has been cleaned up somewhat: there are no
           global variables holding DynFlags any more, instead the DynFlags
           are passed around properly.
      
         - There are a few less global variables in GHC.  Lots more are
           scheduled for removal.
      
         - -i is now a dynamic flag, as are all the package-related flags (but
           using them in {-# OPTIONS #-} is Officially Not Recommended).
      
         - make -j now appears to work under fptools/libraries/.  Probably
           wouldn't take much to get it working for a whole build.

      ------------------------------------------
      	Keep-alive set and Template Haskell quotes
      	------------------------------------------
      
      a) Template Haskell quotes should be able to mention top-leve
         things without resorting to lifting.  Example
      
      	module Foo( foo ) where
      	  f x = x
      	  foo = [| f 4 |]
      
         Here the reference to 'f' is ok; no need to 'lift' it.
         The relevant changes are in TcExpr.tcId
      
      b) However, we must take care not to discard the binding for f,
         so we add it to the 'keep-alive' set for the module.  I've
         now made this into (another) mutable bucket, tcg_keep, 
         in the TcGblEnv
      
      c) That in turn led me to look at the handling of orphan rules;
         as a result I made IdCoreRule into its own data type, which
         has simle but non-local ramifications

      Update s/r conflict total after Ross added four more.  The total
      according to the comment is currently one more than the real number,
      so one of them must have gone away.  At some point we should track
      down which one.
