Well, this is not surprising: Cabal will simply disable the vty support
in yi if it does not find a compatible vty version. You at least also
need to patch the .cabal file to allow for the newer version of vty.

Alternatively, if you care about yi you are probably in the position to
tell us what features are missing without vty, and whether we can maybe
drop the dependency.

It’s open to non-DMs, so if you are interested in helping out with yi
and the other 750 packages, that’d be great!
