Maybe a simpler code generator would be a better fit, since this task  
isn't really parametrized over types?  I'm not familiar with cabal  
really -- can you drop down to bash?  Can you run an arbitrary  
program?  Or at least one in the cwd?  Or at the very least, one you  
just built?  If so, a simple bash script (or Haskell program) can emit  
valid Haskell to compile.  It can (potentially) be as simple as  
concatenating your IPv6 instances/data to the end of the "default"  
IPv4 code.
