me to, but the other way is also annoying.

How about this: We stick to the current package plan, liberate
ourselves a bit from LTS until things have settled.

In particular: We do not downgrade aeson, follow LTS as far as possible
(e.g. where we are not already ahead).

As soon as Stackage nightly has aeson-0.11, we start to follow stackage
nightly and eventually switch to LTS-0.6 together with GHC-8.0.
