Btw I wanted to add that it is a lot easier for me now to test builds
of ghc than it was in the past (mainly since I stopped doing
bootstraps and testsuite builds, and also added a quick build option
in my .spec build script).

In Fedora we have 6 arch's now: 2 intel, 2 arm, s390x, and ppc64le.
And the new Fedora module system means I can ship multiple versions of
ghc for current Fedora releases (since 28), which is rather nice. :)
