A decision was made that for most packages aur does not make sense. If 
you do not find a package in [extra]/[community]/[haskell] then 
cabal2arch is what will help you better in most cases. It will generate 
PKGFILE from a cabal file (which you get from hackage). There may be 
some cases when additional patches are required and in that case aur may 
make sense but these should be rare. Actually, the orphaned haskell 
packages should be removed from aur.
