Haskell debugging with Hat on Windows

For the last couple of days I've been trying to get Hat working on Windows. I now have over half the tools working on Windows, and have a bundle ready for Windows users to install:

How to install: Extract the contents of the .zip file into a folder preserving
directory structure. Add the folder containing hat-make to your %PATH% variable, this is
100% required, even if you give the explicit path to hat-make when you
use it. Make sure ghc is available on your system and has been added to the %PATH%.

How to use: cd to the directory containing your Haskell source
hat-make Main.hs
hat-stack Main.hat
hat-observe Main.hat

I am also working on a graphical user interface for these tools, a screenshot is here, using Gtk2Hs. - its not ready yet, but hopefully soon.

If any Windows users try this out and find that it either works or does not, please let me know.
