Looking at the ticket 'http://hackage.haskell.org/trac/ghc/ticket/3693',
I don't now if even the current GHC version (7.6.1) is enough to
get stack traces.

Also the release notes of 7.6.1 don't contain anything about stack traces.

I think that stack traces are such a huge thing, that an early 7.6.2 just
adding these would be great.
