Let's do it in 7.0.2. We're desperately trying to make a release, and if we keep smuggling in changes it'll keep receding.
We are not releasing DPH etc until December. When we do I think it's entirely possible that we may need a 7.0.2 GHC release to accompany it. I'd rather do that than keep delaying 7.0.1
