So I actually think this is viable, with two main blockers:

1) Every -doc package generated by ghc 8.0.1-3 has lintian errors
because of <script> tags linking to cdn.mathjax.org.
ghc 8.0.0.20160111-1's changelog mentions this exact issue, and
ghc-doc still has a libjs-mathjax dependency, so someone will
have to figure out what went wrong and fix it.

2) esqueleto needs to be patched to work with persistent 2.6.  This
will break git-annex and so git-annex will have to be patched as
well.  It would be better if this could be fixed upstream so we
don't end up breaking API compatibility, but that doesn't seem to
be happening.

#1 is currently blocking the building and upload of a handful of
necessary packages to NEW.

Otherwise it's a matter of patching or removing (and all the reverse
dependencies of) things like haskell-csv-conduit, anything with
arch-specific failures.

Anyone want to do these things?
