This requires a newer binary than in GHC... which is ok until we have a
package depending on both ghc (the library) and binary. Let's hope that
doesn’t happen... Otherwise, this looks good, and can be done
independently from the rest.

Updating pandoc also requires updating gitit and hakyll; they luckily
have compatible versions.

The biggest problem is aeson: Uprading aeson requires upgrading
attoparsec which requires updating scientific, text, fb. Upgrading text
requires upgrading parsec, case-insensitive.

Furthermore, all of leksah needs to be upgraded (new attoparsec).

And finally there is yesod-markdown, where the first version compatible
with pandoc requires shakespeare-2.0, which is some work (four
shakespeare-* have been merged into shakespeare and we then need to
patch half a dozend packages to not include these dependencies)...

I had a look to see if leksah can be upgraded on its own, but it also
pulls in shakespeare-2.0... :-(

You could check if the aeson-dependency could be relaxed to allow for, then we could distangle these upgrades a bit.


PS: Who said that the “package whatever we like” policy is good?...
