Ticket #1458 (closed bug: wontfix)
FPS package dependency in GHC 6.4 and GHC 6.6
When switching from GHC-6.4 to GHC-6.6 I must remove all FPS dependencies in Cabal, which is not only very annoying, but seems to be unnecessary. I understand that ByteStrings? are now integral part of the GHC package, but why can't there be an FPS package, maybe a dummy package, that must be imported for using ByteStrings?? Remember that this is not only about switching from 6.4 to 6.6: I have different machines with different versions of GHC, thus I have to work with both versions simultaneously.
