Yes, that's the reason why our ghc is lagging so much. In fact, we
have plans to stop supporting the platform mainly for this reason.

In the near future (hopefully in a month or so), the our extra
repository would only contain the latest stable ghc (currently at
7.2.2) and cabal-install (plus its deps).
