I wasn't thinking of doing any uploads that'd introduce new binary packages until after the release.

Maybe “ghc6-ghci” (or something better – I don’t care :-))? AFAIK specifying architectures in control fields only applies to B-D and the like. I can't use Provides like that. I would rather use a proper package for that. It would be a lean one but it could still be a place for ghci and runhaskell. > no replies so far.

I've thought about this myself and will implement it later. That I'm lazy to write emails is nothing new. Sorry.
