that’s precisely what I had in mind.

But note that Stackage (non-LTS) is already on 7.10, and LTS-3 will
simply be a snapshot of that, so we could simply upgrade to some
stackage nightly while putting 7.10 to unstable, and then follow the
nightlies until LTS-3.0 is out.

But let’s do the removals first, then.
