 Replying to [comment:3 duncan]:
 > 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.

 We have the data readily available inside the packages, but it will be
 non-trivial to export them in a way that makes them available for non-
 installed packages. I’ll bring it up on debian-haskell, maybe someone has
 a ingenious idea. I don’t :-)
