How up to date will Debian unstable's GHC be kept, though? It seems
pretty good at the moment, but there have been times when we've had to
install from source instead of via Debian earlier this year so that we
had GHC features and bugfixes in place - the Debian version has got
rather out of date at times with respect to stuff we needed.
