I've just made an attempt at adding ghc-paths to [haskell], but I
failed because [extra]/[community] is broken:
- one of the packages that depend on ghc-paths also depends on
- deepseq is gone from [extra]/[community], so I added it too to
- one of the packages that depend on deepseq also depends on text, and
- text in [extra]/[community] depend on deepseq
This effectively prevents me from fixing [haskell] until
[extra]/[community] is fixed!
This episode has made me consider whether the tight dependency between
[haskell] and [extra]/[community] should be broken in the future.

Most software today is very much like an Egyptian pyramid with
millions of bricks piled on top of each other, with no structural
integrity, but just done by brute force and thousands of slaves.
