HsJudy doesn't compile against the latest judy library (as Don knew) -
presumably he had a good reason to start a new package instead of
patching the old one.

There should be a way to mark packages as deprecated on hackage, and
at the same time direct people to a more suitable alternative. Aside
from uploading a dummy new version (ugh!), I don't see a way to do
that currently.
