I have split c2hs into three packages once, the remains of CTK
that it uses, the C parser and pretty printer, and c2hs itself.
(I also tried to give the modules more sensible hierarchical names -
CTK would reside in CTK.* and the C stuff in Language.C.*)
However, I found the result fairly hard to use, partly due to CTK
and partly because some aspects of the C ADT that c2hs uses appears
to be designed for c2hs, not as a general purpose C AST. There's
also a lot of room for adding new utility functions for inspecting
I'm reluctant to publish the split packages because they really don't
add much value over c2hs and I don't want to create a c2hs fork, or
duplicate effort that goes into improving that code.
