Meh; why is it not supported? Any place I can read up on this? MIPS

If there is a technical reason, I can not disagree.

Thanks for letting my know!

PS: Please note that I don't speak haskell, but given the extensive
tests joeyh put into place, and that he still follows the same
workflow as before, I am confident enough to do normal grunt work.
