Taking binary from hackage or GHC?

Dear interested parties :-),

GHC 7.4.1 started to ship and expose the binary library, version On hackage is binary- In Debian, we try to provide one
version of each library, so we have to decide:

 * Use the version provided by GHC and drop the independent binary
package (as we have done with random, for example).

 * Do not expose binary in GHC and continue using the version from

@Upstream: Do you think binary on hackage will diverge much from the one
in GHC and would you expect your users to want the new versions before
they are shipped with GHC? And do you expect breakage in any components
(e.g. haddock) if everything but GHC uses a newer binary package?
