One option might to add a fourth package: a virtual package that includes
all the others.  (E.g. a libghc6-network that would pull
libghc6-network-dev, -prof and -doc.)  I generally just add a wildcard
(apt-get install libghc6-network-\*), though, which isn't a lot harder.

If I haven't seen further, it is by standing in the footprints of giants
