[arch-haskell] haskell-extensible-exceptions in GHC *and* in [extra]

Is there some particular reason for keeping a copy of
extensible-exceptions in [extra]?

extensibe-exceptions is provided by GHC
extensible-exceptions is in [extra]

Finally, haskell-platform 2010.2.0.0 specifies version

The only package which requires extensible-exceptions is
haskell-terminfo, but according to its hackage page it has the

    extensible-exceptions (>= & <0.2)

So it would be satisfied by the version bundled with GHC.

Given all this, couldn't we just remove the version of
extensible-exceptions in [extra] (and rebuild haskell-terminfo)?
