I would encourage you to upload it to Hackage regardless of its
supposed maturity, especially if you want feedback.  I'm not sure why
you would be hesitant to upload your package; Hackage hosts an
extremely wide range of packages in terms of maturity, and that's a
good thing.  It also provides a very convenient method (in combination
with cabal-install) of disseminating libraries.  I am several orders
of magnitude more likely to try something out if I can just 'cabal
install foo' than if I have to manually download and unpack a tarball
myself, and I doubt I am alone in this.
