 When attempting to upload [http://code.haskell.org/~sjanssen/xmonad-
 contrib-0.8.1.tar.gz xmonad-contrib-0.8.1] to Hackage:
 400 Error in upload
 'ghc-options: -O0' is not needed. Use the --disable-optimization configure

 xmonad-contrib.cabal has the following:
     if impl (ghc >= 6.10.1) && arch (x86_64)
         ghc-options:    -O0

 This is a workaround for GHC bug
 http://hackage.haskell.org/trac/ghc/ticket/2961 .  If we do not disable
 optimizations on x86_64 and GHC 6.10.1, our users experience lockups and
 crashes.  This is rather critical for us, as we are now unable to release
 a stable version of xmonad.

 This error should be changed to a strong warning -- sometimes the package
 author really does know better than the package manager.
