Intel-only, I believe :(.  I have no idea how I'd even begin to build
universal binaries for this stuff, nor do I have a non-intel machine to
build it on.

Once I get the installer procedure perfected, perhaps you could
volunteer to build that version of the package?

Ultimately packages get registered with GHC via the "ghc-pkg" command,
so the two should be compatible; I'd expect most users would want to
switch to cabal though.
