unique identifiers as a separate library

for a project I am using the libraries Unique, UniqSupply, and UniqFM  
from the package ghc. It seems odd to have a dependency on a whole  
compiler only in order to use its (highly efficient and, hence,  
preferred) implementation of unique identifiers.

Would it be possible to put everything concerned with unique  
identifiers in GHC into a separate package on Hackage?

This may also allow me to get a fix for <http://hackage.haskell.org/trac/ghc/ticket/2880 
 > without reinstalling GHC.
