not very, but if GHC needs specific patches that are not applied by
upstream, then there is little way around it. And it’s only a wish, not
a hard rule.

We can probably still decide no to use the embedded copy, but I’m
inclined not to risk hard to track down bugs that would only affect
Debian this way.
