this leads us to the question: What do we want in squeeze? Are we happy
with the current situation? Or should we try to get 6.12.3 and 2010.2.

As I can see it currently, the state of haskell in testing is quite
well. So if we’d upload ghc6-6.12.3 to unstable now and do _not_ make it
in testing in time, there is not much of a loss. The only possible
problem is if we do not make it to testing in time _and_ it turns out
that we have to fix bugs in testing; then we would have to use
testing-proposed-updates to fix those.

I think I’m in favor of uploading ghc6-6.12.3 and updated libraries to
unstable. I’m especially interested in koals opinion, as he is the ghc6
