Right, it is not in the platform, but I would recommend to install those
packages that you find useful (and vote for packages to be included into
later versions of the platform.)

Interestingly, there is a hidden package ghc-binary-, which
almost looks like binary-

Maybe ghc developers and platform maintainers could comment on any
differences. If there are none you could simple "ghc-pkg expose
ghc-binary". For future versions of ghc and the platform a single
ghc-binary or binary version would be better.
