That is indeed an option. From what I gather from the internets,
FileManipCompat was for a while a windows-specific package, but this
(windows-specific) disappeared from its description a while back.

Anyway, I see three options:

- try to get the packages merged
- try to get shelltestrunner to work, as distributed by upstream, with
  either (can cabal do this?)
- try to see if shelltestrunner can work with the 'plain' filemanip
  package, and eventually use it as such

OK. Then FYI, I'll try to see about solving the dependency issue and
getting it packaged, in my "copious" amounts of free time :)
