    v19 v20  
    4343 * `hpc` 
    4444 * `extensible-exceptions`: this is a shim that provides an API to older versions of GHC that is compatible with what the current `base` package now exports.  So, unusually, `extensible-exceptions` is a zero-boot package, but not a boot package. 
     45 * `bin-package-db`: a GHC-specific package that provides binary serialisation of the package database, use by `ghc-pkg` and 
     46GHC itself. 
     47 * `binary` (renamed to `ghc-binary` in the 6.12 branch): required by `bin-package-db`.
