"break" in the sense that they're now registered but won't have an
appropriate compiler installed.

If we could at least list the names (and commands to reinstall )
packages that are about to break (all haskell-* on the system), that
might be nice.
Essentially, something like:
"WARNING: the following packages will need to be reinstalled:
pacman -Qs haskell-
A binding to the X11 authentication library
Parses XML files used by the XCB project
An XHTML combinator library
A simple XML library.
Basics for XML/HTML representation and processing
A MUD client library
Library for creating and modifying zip archives.
Compression and decompression in the gzip and zlib formats
> Also, none of the community packages are built against this yet, so
> those will break as well.
