Will this release include the -odir fix (the one for hiearchical names)?

We are having problems in a particular case:

We are building a program which contains of a number of haskell files,
and a C wrapper that calls the haskell functions. When compiling the
haskell files header files are generated, which are needed to compile
the C wrapper. We do this something like this

ghc --make Module.hs -odir lib
gcc -c wrapper.c
ghc wrapper.o odir/*.o

Do we have to wait for a version that does -odir correctly, or is there
a better way to do this? The problem is that if we compile without -odir
the object files are generated where the source files are, and those
directories (it's our custom haskell libraries) include a lot of source
and object files that should not be part of this program.
