[Haskell-cafe] wiki in hackage

i think to add a wiki to each package is a great idea. as a default, it could 
be started automatically by uploading to hackage and filled with the readme.txt 
file (if availble) in the tar uploaded. if it is empty and exist, it is a point 
to check for when a package does not install immediately. alternatively, one 
has to search the web to see if there is some place with notices about this 

i would have loved to see wiki's for packages to post my result of work-
arounds for problems with dependencies, small changes in source code etc. that 
could be posted there till the maintainer finds time to produce a new version. 

great idea!
