The plan is not to release 6.6.2, and if we do release it then it
probably wouldn't have this change anyway (it would probably use the
exact same extralibs as 6.6.1, as the old build system has been removed
from the extralibs now).

It will be in 6.8 (in as much as the extralibs are "in" GHC releases)
which is tentatively scheduled for sometime this summer.

Of course, the point of extralibs is that network can be released
asynchronously, so you can use it with 6.6.1 today should you wish.

Personally, I'd therefore recommend writing up the new API.
