As one of the few people who has habitually used Haskell'98 wherever possible, I favour plan A.  As I recently discovered, in ghc 7 it is already very fragile to attempt to depend on both the base and haskell98 packages simultaneously.  In most cases it simply doesn't work.  Removing those few remaining cases where it happens to work by accident would be a good move.
