I might.  I generally want to use newer versions of development stuff
(i.e. Haskell libraries etc) than is available in official repos.
Were there an unofficial, cutting edge repo at hackage, I could just
add it to my sources.list, instead of compiling stuff myself from
darcs repos or hackage tarballs.

Even if we only get a handful of users, this would be an important
testing stage for packages before submitting them to official Debian
(and Ubuntu) repos.

I'm all for it.

If I haven't seen further, it is by standing in the footprints of giants
