I agree its worthwhile to combine efforts.  My only concern is to maintain 
the code quality.  The original HWS was written quite well.  The plugins 
extension I found was not of the same code quality. I haven't looked at 
the WASH modifications, so I don't know how they compare.

I dont know much about using the haskell.org repository, but I'd be
happy to contribute to it if there was an HWS repository there...
