I think whatever we go with will be deeply painful. Especially given
the switch to Cabal configurations comes at the same time, rather than
before. However, remember this is a one of set of pain, which will
hopefully never be repeated.

In the absence of anyone else doing anything, I'll probably give it a
month or two, then upgrade all my packages on hackage.
