The easy way would be as .stabs entries since that's what gdb uses.
However, stabs entries themselves are absolutely horrible (the design
obviously started simple and acquired a bunch of ad hoc hacks along the way).
But if you're willing to encode everything as strings, you could spit out a
bunch of what look like filename directives but put general data in the
strings instead of filenames.
(Or read up on stabs directives carefully and try to force-fit Haskell into a
design made for C, C++, etc.)
