I'm not sure what you mean by "weak" here. We used to base
[haskell-core] (back then it was called just [haskell]) on [extra],
but found it cumbersome to track changes--there was no way to be
notified about changes to specific packages (maybe that's possible
nowadays). We were also not able to track Hackage as closely as we
