 Replying to [comment:2 nomeata]:
 > What if information from /var/lib/ghc-6.10.4/./package.conf would be
 available even for yet-uninstalled distro packages, e.g. the complete
 value of InstalledPackageInfo. Would the task them become handleable?

 Yes. That would be more than sufficient. If that's easiest then fine,
 otherwise the minimum required is the complete dependency graph of exact
 package versions.
