base is not trusted by default
By default base doesn't appear to be trusted. I was asked to modify XHTML so that it would be trusted on post-7.0.1 compilers.
As a result XHTML won't compile on 7.2.1 out of the box and therefore hackage thinks it is broken and won't generate any Haddock markup.
I thought (and had been given to understand though the grapevine) that this was an oversight/bug in 7.2.1 but 7.2.2rc1 also has the same behavior.
So should base be trusted by default? If so then what about the sources of the core modules registered with hackage? Should they not be marked as trusted, or should the professed trustworthiness be put on a flag?
