In the meantime, there is no way to make atomic updates to GHC and Haddock
(which need to happen regularly). And GHC's master and the ghc-head branch
keep getting out of sync. It's really hard to diagnose, until it blocks
someone's valuable time. At which point it's too late.

Is there a short term solution which would alleviate that cost, besides
merging Haddock in the main Ghc tree?
