I noticed this situation a few days ago when I updated a few
gtk-related packages in [haskell] (that's when I created all the
renaming-bugs).  Before that I wasn't even aware that
gtk/glade/pango/etc was in [community]. My goal is to at some point
remove these packages from [haskell] but for now they remain.

For now it's best to place [haskell] before [community] in
pacman.conf.  In fact I agree that it's probably safest to always do

Most software today is very much like an Egyptian pyramid with
millions of bricks piled on top of each other, with no structural
integrity, but just done by brute force and thousands of slaves.
