Description

GHC.Integer.GMP.Internals no longer exports the constructors for the Integer type. This makes them inaccessible to library writers. Several libraries in the Haskell Platform (e.g. text) rely on them and do not currently compile against ghc-7.3

That's bad, I need the constructors too. If GHC.Integer.GMP.Internals should not depend on GHC.Integer.Type, what about adding a module GHC.Integer.GMP.Type exporting them?
