 Can you upload this to hackage?

 I'm sure if we had a Cabal-src package that people could enable with ghc-
 pkg instead of the default Cabal, many people would want to install it.
 Lots of packages have inadequate or occasionally ambiguous documentation,
 so I think the lack of easily browsable source code is a real impediment
 to adoption of Haskell compared to interpreted languages.
