Personally, I think supporting GHC 7.0+ is a natural boundary, as GHC
7.0.1 was the first to support Haskell2010. 

Are there any specific GHC 7.4+ features you want to use, or any other
inconveniences (other than keeping an ghc-7.0.4 entry in the travis.yml
file) that would increase the cost to keep supporting GHC 7.0.x?
