my repository <https://github.com/peti/arch-haskell> contains the
program scripts/reverse-dependencies.hs, which can list all users of a
given package. I use it to determine which packages need their $pkgrel
bumped after an update.

Yes, I think we do. The package 'haskell-utility-ht' has already been
re-built with GHC 7.0.2, and it has been uploaded to the binary
repository. If that package is updated, its users need their $pkgrel

Take care,
