* even if it would mean downgrading 6.12.1 to 6.10.4
* the binary version should be the stable one, if somebody
  wants to be very up to date, then aur is for him/her

It would be also good to have the latest ghc package in aur which
  sometimes/often would be newer than the binary package in extra.

Having more repositories for haskell packages (based on which
  ghc version they depend on) looks nice but I personally do not
  really care. Extra and aur sounds good enough.

I like the idea that all haskell package dependencies will be in the
  provides list (even when there are some tools (yaourt) which do
  not support it now - the bug should be fixed where it is (yaourt)).

Thanks for working on this,
