I'll emerge from my lurk-cave to say:

Agreed. Trying to stick to the HP is more often than not a hinderence: what
would be really great is the latest "core" Haskell packages -- cabal, ghc,
base libraries etc. -- be available in extra/whatever repo, but that's
about all that I could reasonably ask for. Trying to maintain a huge number
of binary packages from Hackage, when they all update differently, depend
on different packages which themselves might update unpredictably etc. so
far yields mostly-out-of-date Haskell packages.

- Mike.
