A note, WinHugs is very internally tied to Hugs in very specific, and quite nasty ways. While it would be possible, one week is probably a bit of an underestimate!

I think we could close this ticket.

Because Haskell Platform includes WinGHCi on Windows Platform, though GHC doesn't include WinGHCi.

If anyone has opinion about WinGHCi, I think we should open another ticket on Haskell Platform's Trac, or any other more suitable place.

I don't think WinGHCi being part of the platform really helps, as you still can't use the GHC extensions etc with it.

But I do agree that this ticket isn't really serving any purpose; if someone wants to make a Windows frontend, then they will do so, and this ticket won't really help. So I'm closing it.
