Only up to a point; not all programs written using such libraries are
necessarily going to end up on hackage. (Consider the code written
by the financials folks that have been mentioned here various times;
and I have a couple programs which would be quite useless outside of
CMU ECE because they operate on parts of our site-specific
infrastructure.) It would certainly be a start, though.
