Sorry, I never intended to do anything like this: I only wanted to put
the list of dependencies which should be eliminated in a separate
file. It only happened that I wanted (locally on my machine) to
include base packages (like haskell-containers) into the list of
dependencies that should be eliminated, and that change got commited
to the main repository by accident some days ago, as I said in another

This change is still subject to discussion.
