Yes, in general I think the doc needs a section: Incompatible changes. The
hope is that you can take the release and just work as usual but when (for
good reasons as in this release) it is not true is is important to have
such a section. Another case that needs to be there is how to compile so
you can load compile object files into ghci as what you did in 7.6.3 won't
work in this release.
