No. Not the right thing for cabal the package system to do.

They're both in the platform.

The platform depends on GHC, and a specific release of the core libraries
No, the platform doesn't specify the language. The library report is the
haddock documentation however.

The initial is just extralibs + cabal-install
We need to work out the ticket creation process first before adding new pieces.

Personal subscriptions, or to the libraries@ list?
