Yes!  I noticed this earlier today.  I made the patches before Arun
updated darcs and all of its dependencies.  One of the updated packages
is ghc-base-compat, which is now too new for ghc-aeson.  Unfortunately,
if we update ghc-aeson, we need to update ghc-text, which has around 300
dependencies.  I’m not sure how to proceed here.  The patches up to (but
excluding) ghc-persistent should be fine IIRC.

I didn’t look very closely into Arun’s changes to see if we could find a
set of mutually agreeable versions.  To do so would involve downgrading
packages that Arun changed, which seems undesirable.

Ricardo mentioned on IRC that we should try and update all of our
packages to the recent LTS versions, which would be ideal here.  The
blocker is getting GHC 8.4.3 to work (which I am working on).

Maybe this patch series should just be rejected for now.

Thank you for reviewing!
