What's actually involved in installing a 100% Haskell package? I was
under the impression you just need to put the compiled code somewhere
nice, and then tell GHC where you put it?
Would it not be possible to write a Cabal package description that just
takes a bunch of binary objects, puts them somewhere, and tells GHC?
(Obviously if the package is a binding to some external library things
become more complex...)
