An alternate solution that can be done completely outside the hackage loop:

Set up a server to poll the "Source-Repository head" of every hackage
package that includes one in it's cabal file, then rerun the build any
time a change is detected. This may be a good excuse to implement a
pluggable continuous integration server in haskell too along the lines
of what Hudson is for java... maybe an idea for the next GSoC

Best, Keith
