took considerable time and effort to upgrade them all to a consistent
LTS set.

This makes the review of updates to ghc-* packages a little slower for
me because these packages really ought to be upgraded together so that
they closely resemble whichever LTS version we’re following.

(This is what I’m doing for Bioconductor and CRAN packages and it would
be great if we could regularly sync our Haskell packages in the same
