Haskell Platform decision: time to bless parsec 3?

Hey all,

This is a loose end in the package policy situation: when the HP has a
major upgrade, the policy is to do all major upgrades for any packages
contained in the HP, as long as they don't add new dependencies.

One exception to this rule has been parsec, where parsec 2 was
considered "blessed" on an ad hoc basis.

I propose we agree to remove this ad hoc rule, and thus the HP will ship
with parsec 3.

Does anyone have concerns with this?
