I don't think he deprives many readers at all. The sources for the
book (the compiler) are available in both Miranda and Gofer. The Gofer
versions run on the gofer interpreter, which is freely available and
which compiles on many many platforms. Pretty soon, the new Haskell
will look quite similar to Gofer, in which case you will have a compiler
