[arch-haskell] Snap web framework - not in ArchHaskell?

Thanks for tha, B?r?ur!

It's a bit of a pity that I would have to duplicate many libraries
aready installed via arch-haskell / pacman with cabal natively (and I
agree, needs to be fully-isolated - I'll look into hsenv, thanks!).

I'm curious - I thought the goal of arch-haskell was to ultimately
contain all hackage packages. Snap is in hackage - what makes it
difficult to get into arch-haskell?

I am not trying to complain - just trying to establish the situation. I
am very new to the haskell world, but passionate about it beyond belief.
I am happy to help where I can.

kind regards,
Dawid Loubser
