Hmm, that would be rather unfortunate. But if we go with my suggested split
of functionality betweeen template-haskell and haskell-src-exts, it should
be enough to lock down the version of template-haskell, right? As long as
the template-haskell version depends on the expected version of
haskell-src-exts, installing newer versions of haskell-src-exts should
still be possible. Or am I missing something?
