Interestingly enough...it looks as that I had feeling something would
happen and few days ago asked a question about Haskell vs D (dons even
had time to answer it - see

In my case, it would mean that I could be less involved with Haskell
for the simple reasons of using and having need for much less packages
than before...

Let's first see who wants to be part of the 'team' or everything was
just one-man-band.

This is interesting idea...

...however, in the spirit of Arch (in comparison with the Gentoo which
I left 3yrs ago), I consider that having kind of 'Haskell overlay'
with binary packages would be very nice...
