We included Control.OldException in base to help people trying to remain compatible with both GHC 6.8 and GHC 6.10. However, my impression is that most (all?) people who wanted compatibility used the extensible-exceptions package instead.
I propose that we remove Control.OldException for GHC 6.12.
If anyone does want Control.OldException, then it could be provided by a separate package.
Deadline: 2nd August (2 weeks).
