Hello,

I'd like to unmask GHC 7.0.4. Unfortunately there is no good method to
upgrade packages that depend on GHC. In general I follow this
procedure:

1. Upgrade GHC
2. Save/memorise currently installed packages depending on GHC
3. Uninstall all packages that depend on GHC
4. Use eclectic to update ghc and hsc2hs links
5. Install haddock
6. Install all packages from step 3

Your mileage may vary.

If nobody objects I'll unmask GHC 7.0.4 shortly.

-Markus
