[Haskell-cafe] Could C libraries be part of Haskell Platform?

Probably not, but... There are stable and portable libraries
that implement functionality missing in Haskell. It could be
nice to be able to list then in a cabal file (using, say,
pkgconfig-depends) and know for sure that any system with
Haskell Platform will have then available for use with FFI.
An example would be sqlite3.

To me, this seems to be ugly in theory and good in practice.
