Just for clarification, the second command in the generated "reinstall.sh"
script should re-install all explicitly installed packages that depend on ghc.
It could be run after "pacman -Rsc haskell-transformers" and the upgrade to
re-install any packages that were hit by the cascade. It's not a direct
solution to the problem but it can be easily adapted to become one.
