I'm actually in favour of this or a creation of haskell
  (or ghc-dependency) pacman group for anything which
  depends on ghc. This would allow me to postpone any
  ghc related update easily. That facilitates management
  of what haskell related package versions are installed
  on my machine.

I'm often out of sync too. But I'm mostly behind :)
