I don't think that [haskell] move to a version of GHC that is newer
than what's in [extra].  This means that in order to avoid doing
unnecessary work you need to ask Vesa what his GHC plans are.  In a
thread from earlier in the autumn he did express some plans, but I
suspect you are already aware of that thread.

I suspect the most worthwhile thing to do is an attempt to use 7.4rc1.

I invented the term Object-Oriented, and I can tell you I did not have
C++ in mind.
