Apart from this, i guess future versions of attoparsec (and other
libraries included in the HP) will probably depend on more libraries
not yet in the HP. So what's the correct way to deal with this?
- Use newer versions for libraries like attoparsec and add additional
libraries they depend on?
- Or reduce the number of libraries included in the HP?
