The set of packages currently on AUR is *huge*, I think Don recently
something in the order of 2000 haskell packages on AUR, and that is
of AUR. I would suggest starting somewhat smaller than that :-)
Maybe starting from Haskell Platform and growing on demand from that?

The size of the .git dir is:
% du -sh .git
For comparison I changed strategy for darcs, instead I recorded each package
in its own changeset:
Total time to add and record: 7638.14s user 1108.26s system 99% cpu
Size of the whole work area: 436M
Size of _darcs: 409M
