Comment (by ross at soi.city.ac.uk):

 There's a good reason that this feature is little used (see the Note in
 the description of this feature in the GHC User's Guide).  Because of
 GHC's cross-module inlining, to do it right you'd need to treat the _hsc.h
 files as both includes and install-includes, to be included in the
 compilation of dependent packages.
