Hi Sebastian,

Thanks for you interest!

I've looked at this before and I must say it's certainly not trivial to do this. In the build of HaRe, we build a (modified) version of Programatica as a dependency to the refactoring engine. We also need to have vim and emacs scripts available to the user after the install. 

One approach would be to separate out the Programatica part of HaRe into a hare-utils package, and then build hare on top of that dependency.

If you have any advice or experience with using cabal or any tips on getting HaRe cabalised we'd love to hear from you.

Kindest regards,
