At least for me that would be very nice as it would confirm if that patch is 
ready for core-updates. And that would help with including/updating some 
packages that have non-trivial configure.

As for the other large updates, like GHC and updating core packages, I will let 
others speak to. But with a separate branch we could start with getting GHC 
8.10.x built and moving packages to newer stackage resolvers (lts 17 or 18?).
