As I mentioned before, I think there will be a lot of work including:
building a 7.4 snapshot (not very stable...), patching *many* packages.
I've already used 7.2.2 (from [testing]) for producing a [haskell-testing],
so, if you don't mind, I could take charge and starting from here. At least
we could have in few days an up-to-date repository.
Then we should find a method to pass packages from [haskell-testing] to
[haskell] and starting to use ghc 7.4 as soon as it will be available in
