How would these two hypotheses relate with the libgmp3-related issue? In
unstable we still have libgmp3-dev, but early or late libgmp10-dev will
enter sid and we'll have to do again the Provides trick. I'm not fully
aware of the implications this will have: other than asking GMP
maintainers to keep the Provides against libgmp3-dev (or adding it again
when we'll need to do the bootstrap with the new dependencies), I think
this will require a rebuild of all Haskell packages. Am I correct?

Moreover, how do you practically implement your second alternative? And
wouldn't it cause problems because of the GMP version disparity?

Personally, I find the first option more clean and I would prefer it,
but I'm not sure I'm not missing anything in my evaluation.

Thanks, Giovanni.
