If base is not compatible with nhc98 anymore, there's a little point to
preserve such compatibility on containers.
Still, for less fortunate operative systems, it would be nice to have
somewhere a list of modules/version actually compatible with Haskell 98.
Also, for future reference, it would be nice if such change is introduced
as a single-change version, so that we know it doesn't introduce or remove
any other functionality except the compatibility.

I wonder what can prevent code to be tested with a different compiler...
