      Some reorganising.  Simon and I agreed to leave out most of the (inaccurate) section
      on primitive operations, pointing people instead to the Real Truth in primops.txt
      and the External Core document.
      
      Also: bugs section added

      documentation for the mdo-notation.
      
      (I've run this through jade, no syntax errors, but couldn't get
      any html output as my docbook installation is a bit weird: couldn't
      find style-files etc. it'll be great if someone can run it through
      to make sure what I added looks acceptable..)

      	Make Template Haskell into the HEAD
      	--------------------------------------
      
      This massive commit transfers to the HEAD all the stuff that
      Simon and Tim have been doing on Template Haskell.  The
      meta-haskell-branch is no more!
      
      WARNING: make sure that you
      
        * Update your links if you are using link trees.
          Some modules have been added, some have gone away.
      
        * Do 'make clean' in all library trees.
          The interface file format has changed, and you can
          get strange panics (sadly) if GHC tries to read old interface files:
          e.g.  ghc-5.05: panic! (the `impossible' happened, GHC version 5.05):
      	  Binary.get(TyClDecl): ForeignType
      
        * You need to recompile the rts too; Linker.c has changed
      
      
      However the libraries are almost unaltered; just a tiny change in
      Base, and to the exports in Prelude.
      
      
      NOTE: so far as TH itself is concerned, expression splices work
      fine, but declaration splices are not complete.
      
      
      		---------------
      		The main change
      		---------------
      
      The main structural change: renaming and typechecking have to be
      interleaved, because we can't rename stuff after a declaration splice
      until after we've typechecked the stuff before (and the splice
      itself).
      
      * Combine the renamer and typecheker monads into one
      	(TcRnMonad, TcRnTypes)
        These two replace TcMonad and RnMonad
      
      * Give them a single 'driver' (TcRnDriver).  This driver
        replaces TcModule.lhs and Rename.lhs
      
      * The haskell-src library package has a module
      	Language/Haskell/THSyntax
        which defines the Haskell data type seen by the TH programmer.
      
      * New modules:
      	hsSyn/Convert.hs 	converts THSyntax -> HsSyn
      	deSugar/DsMeta.hs 	converts HsSyn -> THSyntax
      
      * New module typecheck/TcSplice type-checks Template Haskell splices.
      
      		-------------
      		Linking stuff
      		-------------
      
      * ByteCodeLink has been split into
      	ByteCodeLink	(which links)
      	ByteCodeAsm	(which assembles)
      
      * New module ghci/ObjLink is the object-code linker.
      
      * compMan/CmLink is removed entirely (was out of place)
        Ditto CmTypes (which was tiny)
      
      * Linker.c initialises the linker when it is first used (no need to call
        initLinker any more).  Template Haskell makes it harder to know when
        and whether to initialise the linker.
      
      
      	-------------------------------------
      	Gathering the LIE in the type checker
      	-------------------------------------
      
      * Instead of explicitly gathering constraints in the LIE
      	tcExpr :: RenamedExpr -> TcM (TypecheckedExpr, LIE)
        we now dump the constraints into a mutable varabiable carried
        by the monad, so we get
      	tcExpr :: RenamedExpr -> TcM TypecheckedExpr
      
        Much less clutter in the code, and more efficient too.
        (Originally suggested by Mark Shields.)
      
      
      		-----------------
      		Remove "SysNames"
      		-----------------
      
      Because the renamer and the type checker were entirely separate,
      we had to carry some rather tiresome implicit binders (or "SysNames")
      along inside some of the HsDecl data structures.  They were both
      tiresome and fragile.
      
      Now that the typechecker and renamer are more intimately coupled,
      we can eliminate SysNames (well, mostly... default methods still
      carry something similar).
      
      		-------------
      		Clean up HsPat
      		-------------
      
      One big clean up is this: instead of having two HsPat types (InPat and
      OutPat), they are now combined into one.  This is more consistent with
      the way that HsExpr etc is handled; there are some 'Out' constructors
      for the type checker output.
      
      So:
      	HsPat.InPat	--> HsPat.Pat
      	HsPat.OutPat	--> HsPat.Pat
      	No 'pat' type parameter in HsExpr, HsBinds, etc
      
      	Constructor patterns are nicer now: they use
      		HsPat.HsConDetails
      	for the three cases of constructor patterns:
      		prefix, infix, and record-bindings
      
      	The *same* data type HsConDetails is used in the type
      	declaration of the data type (HsDecls.TyData)
      
      Lots of associated clean-up operations here and there.  Less code.
      Everything is wonderful.

      Allow infix type constructors
      
      This commit adds infix type constructors (but not yet class constructors).
      The documentation describes what should be the case.  Lots of tiresome
      changes, but nothing exciting.
      
      Allows infix type constructors everwhere a type can occur, and in a data
      or type synonym decl.  E.g.
      
      	data a :*: b = ....
      
      
      You can give fixity decls for type constructors, but the fixity decl
      applies both to the tycon and the corresponding data con.

      * Added the options `-ffi' and `-fffi', which switch on FFI support
        (`-fglasgow-exts' implies `-fffi').
      
        NB: Strictly speaking `-fffi' is the correct name; however, `-ffi' is
            supported as an alternative spelling.
      
      * `-fglasgow-exts' no longer enables the `with' keyword for implicit
        parameters.  To use `with' as a keyword, the additional option `-fwith' has
        to be supplied.  (Note that SimonM recently enabled the use of `let' instead
        of `with'.)
      
        NB: This might prompt some makefile tweaks in libraries or regression tests.
      
      * Renamed `Foreign.Marshal.Utils.withObject' to `Foreign.Marshal.Utils.with'
        as required by the FFI Addendum.  (The old name is still available, but
        marked as deprecated.)
      
      * Added `realloc' to `Foreign.Marshal.Alloc' (tracking RC4 of the FFI
        Addendum).
      
      Docu
      ~~~~
      * Added `-ffi', `-fffi', and `-fwith' to the flag reference and the section
        describing options for Glasgow extensions
      
      * Removed most of the FFI section in the User's Guide in favour of a reference
        to the Addendum plus a brief description of additional features supported by
        GHC.
      
        NB: The old material is still available at fptools/docs/, I merely removed
        the reference in the User's Guide.
