I would love to be skilled enough to actually help fix these "holes"
rather than just complaining about them... Sadly, I'm not.
I've got an MD5 library I'm working on, and I've got a thin layer over
Gtk2hs that should make writing programs that render bitmaps easier.
(E.g., ray tracers, fractal generators... all the kinds of things I like
writing!) If I ever manage to mangle those into a working state, I'll
happily hand 'em over. But that's not going to make a huge difference to
the HackageDB as a whole...
