The base library is under the question, but remaining libs of ghc/HP
are in rather good shape

of course, without base we can't do even i/o, so questions still
remains. in particular, you plan to do something with base in 6.12
although it was not yet decided what exactly

so these two discussions (what to do with libs in 6.12 and what to do
with libs in Report) may go together

ideally, we would split base into smaller and versionable packages. at
least in form of interfaces, while implementations will just import
everything from base
