The Platform keeps getting stuck waiting for GHC. The skipped release was
because ghc 7.8 took some 6 months after "we plan to release just before
ICFP 2013"(!); now it's waiting on ghc 7.8.3 bug fixes, which were "should
be released by the end of the week" a couple of weeks ago. :( 7.8.3's bug
fixes are significant enough that it would be bad to release a platform
without them.
