The only problem is that it will take some work to adapt
haskell-src-exts to Haskell 20nn. I spoke to Niklas about this.
He has in principle volunteered to take on the task, but
he can't start on it for a few months. And I don't think it
would be wise to make the package name changes and
end-of-life the current haskell-src until this is done.

So unless someone else can do the work, we may have
to wait until the following HP release.
