[arch-haskell] On datafiles in libraries

I've just created issue 20 for cabal2arch. Basically there's a problem
with the data files provided in archlinux, but used in cabal2arch. Having
data files in a library package breaks our basic assumption that executables
only need to makedepend on the libraries it uses.
In this case I still think that we should remove the data files completely
from the packages and only host them at a well-known URL (on
haskell.org). cabal2arch should then default to use that URL, for
and testing it might be interesting to add a command line switch to load it
from another location, a URL or file.
For now I assigned the issue to Remy. Feel free to re-assign it if you want
This is a larger issue though and in the future we may have to revisit the
assumption. I have a feeling that using shared objects (dynamic libraries)
will force us to change it anyway.
