I don't mind discussing (now or later), but shouldn't the exact 
implications be made clear before? Was the inclusion of attoparsec 
discussed before? (I may have missed it, though.)

If the packages to be updated (aeson) or extended (dlist) or made 
"suitably" new (attoparsec) are not on hackage yet, how can the
"requirement for API stability before inclusion in the HP" be met?
