[arch-haskell] Another tool for packaging Haskell

Since Planet Haskell hasn't been updating for a long time I thought
I'd point to a blog post of mine on a tool I've been working on for a


It's something I started working on earlier this year, after it became
painfully obvious just how much work it was to check dependencies when
updating the packages in ArchHaskell.  That was pretty much all it was
good for then, but it proved to be a big time saver when used in
concert with cabal2arch.  Lately I've been working on integrating
PKGBUILD generation, which basically means that a repo like
https://github.com/archhaskell/habs can be replaced by a database and
a set of package-specific patches.

I still haven't gotten around to uploading it to Hackage, it needs
some minor cosmetic changes (like a proper version number), but please
let me know if you think a tool like this would be useful.

I invented the term Object-Oriented, and I can tell you I did not have
C++ in mind.
