So this is annoying (CCing -cafe) I need NominalDiffTime and UTCTime to have Typeable instances. In 6.10.1, they didn't ship with them out of the box, so I added them. Apparently, in 6.10.3, they DO ship with those instances out of the box.
Annoyingly, that means that my code breaks on 6.10.3. Even more annoyingly, __GLASGOW_HASKELL__ is still 610, so I can't even work around this via cpphs. There appears to be no way to make code that requires those Typeable instances work with both 6.10.1 and 6.10.3. Yet another reason to avoid API incompatibilities in point releases. Does anybody have an idea on the best way to handle this? -- John Don Stewart wrote: > convertible appears broken with 6.10.3.
