Sure there is. I expect there to be quite a lot of shared code.

It's not solely an indenter; the same interface and capabilities will
be used for a debugger, refactoring, and type signature info.
Haskell-mode should still work without it, to about the same degree as
today, but actually doing so would be a *major* degradation compared
to the state of the art once I'm done with it.

In any case, I expect the actual installation to be via cabal-install.
