I would like Vesa to take part to this discussion... In that thread he
planned to drop haskell-platform (and I fully agree) but talked about
moving those packages to [community]. IMHO the most useful thing to do is
putting *all* haskell packages in [haskell], this is the easiest way to
track dependencies with cblrepo.

I used 7.2.2 from [testing]. I suspect that a lot of package will not
compile with 7.4...
