+The Haskell Platform is a comprehensive, robust development for programming
+in Haskell, which not only makes it trivial to get up and running with a full
+Haskell development environment, but also provides a comprehensive, standard
+base for commercial and open source Haskell development that maximises
+interoperability and stability of your code.
+This requires ghc, and hscolour is an optional requirement.
+This is intended to be installed on a system that does not already have any
+haskell-related components (other than ghc & hscolour, of course) installed,
+so for best results (and chance of success), you should remove any of those
+before you try to build haskell-platform.
