wording does indeed help a lot. I remember that 7.2 was dubbed a
technology review with the effect that, at least Debian, never included
it in the main repository. It was packaged and provided in experimental,
for easy access to those who want to play with it, but not with
additional library packages. From what I can remember, there was no push
towards supporting 7.2 properly, and I believe this would have been
different if 7.2 was just “the next regular GHC release”.
