But what does this mean in practice? Does it mean we deprecate
old-locale in favor of a new package time-locale?

(It would be nice if cabal would emit a warning when depending on a
deprecated package, just like DEPRECATE pragmas for functions do)

What does this mean for the Haskell Platform? Do we add time-locale?
Removing old-locale is problematic since a number of packages in the
HP depend on it:


But it's probably best to just update these packages to work with time
and time-locale.
