One thing that I'd like to highlight is my email[1] I sent soon after
installing haskell-platform a few weeks ago--it resulted in a "diamond
dependency situation".  I suspect that that sort of situation would be
easier to avoid if haskell-platform went into [community], or am I
completely wrong about that?
