Fork threads and wait for their result

Official package sites : ·

This package provides functions to fork threads and wait for their result, whether it's an exception or a normal value. Besides waiting for the termination of a single thread this packages also provides functions to wait for a group of threads to terminate. This package is similar to the @threadmanager@, @async@ and @spawn@ packages. The advantages of this package are: * Simpler API. * More efficient in both space and time. * No space-leak when forking a large number of threads. * Correct handling of asynchronous exceptions. * GHC specific functionality like @forkOn@ and @forkIOWithUnmask@.

Add extra documentation (API, Javadoc, etc). It is recommended to enable per package instead of globally
Include coloured haskell sources to generated documentation (dev-haskell/hscolour)
Add support for software performance analysis (will likely vary from ebuild to ebuild)
Enable dependencies and/or preparations necessary to run tests (usually controlled by FEATURES=test but can be toggled independently)

proj/gentoo: Initial commit
This commit represents a new era for Gentoo: Storing the gentoo-x86 tree in Git, as converted from CVS. This commit is the start of the NEW history. Any historical data is intended to be grafted onto this point. Creation process: 1. Take final CVS checkout snapshot 2. Remove ALL ChangeLog* files 3. Transform all Manifests to thin 4. Remove empty Manifests 5. Convert all stale $Header$/$Id$ CVS keywords to non-expanded Git $Id$ 5.1. Do not touch files with -kb/-ko keyword flags. Signed-off-by: Robin H.
