Description

Language extensions make Haskell more usable and enrich its expressiveness, but slow down building times.

How about we investigate on a "light" GHC version? It could only be capable of processing a subset of Language extensions however would run faster.

A good place to start could be to identify, what GHC spends most of the time doing - when building the most popular libraries.
