unfortunately, yes. was not using QuickCheck yet.

I’m adding the quickcheck developers to the CC (I hope their mailing
list accepts non-subscriber posts). Here is the issue:

Quickcheck started to use TH which is not available on all
architectures, which causes problems. Do you really _need_ TH or could
you, using some copy’n’pasting, achieve the same without? And if you
really need it, could you imagine making it optional, via a flag?
