Since I've now added all the packages you list above, except for
pandoc, I'll make the push of GHC 7.6 on Wednesday.  I plan to move
[haskell] to [haskell-old] and [haskell-testing] to [haskell].  I'll
keep [haskell-old] around on kiwilight for a week or so, unless I get
requests for keeping it longer.

Now is the time to raise any objections and convince me to hold off
further :-)

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