I am working on such a project myself for Haskell programs
(haddock/alex etc) but not libraries. Can you give more details about
your proposal, so I don't end up doing something already solved?

My plan is to reuse the WinHugs installer for Yhc, WinHugs, Hat and
Cabal generated programs (Haddock, Alex, Happy).

This is exactly the thing that should be used for! Perhaps
you might want to look at hackage as well, and see if you can
integrate with that.
