(Speaking as someone entirely unfamiliar with both packages, so this may
be a crazy idea), I wonder if it might be better rename haskell-src-exts
to haskell-src and for this to just be a major version bump. After all,
nowadays more and more "extensions" are going to be part of the
language, and who would actually use haskell-src once haskell-src-exts
is part of the platform?
