Fwd: Is anything being done to remedy the soul crushing compile times of GHC?

Here's a thought: has anyone experience with limiting a certain major
release to just bug fixes and perf regression fixes, while postponing
all feature patches? It sounds like a good idea on paper, but has
anyone seen it work, and would this be something to consider for GHC?
I'm not suggesting the even/odd versioning scheme, if anyone wonders.
These don't work so well and nobody tests odd versions.
