Those two properties are strongly correlated.

There is backports.org for cases where you want to cherry-pick a handful
of packages for which stability is less important than newness.  Of
course, GHC 6.8 isn't on backports.org at present.  That means either
it's non-trivial to backport, or nobody has volunteered the time.
