I am not sure why you want to control the desugaring of literals.  Why literals?  And why is literals enough?

I still think that the stub generation for foreign declarations should be easily separable.   The desugarer generates a certainly amount of unwrapping, but you'll want that for JavaScript too. The actual calling convention is embedded inside the Id: see the FCallId constructor of IdDetails in IdInfo.lhs, and the ForeignCall type in ForiegnCall.lhs.
