[maintain] [Publish]

As of now, the GHCi interactive runtime is incapable of working on unboxed tuples. In particular, it is unable to fully apply any function returning an unboxed tuple, create a function that takes a non-nullary unboxed tuple as argument, or pass a non-nullary tuple to some other function. The usual solution is to enable object code generation with -fobject-code. This package serves as a workaround for the cases where -fobject-code is undesiable.
