I suggested a SoC project to implement a dependencies section for Setup.hs:


I wasn't aware of PackageImports -- I personally think that it's
better to move the dependencies into a single place to reduce
conflicts and to make it easier to identify the dependencies, but I'm
open to arguments to the contrary :)

In any case, this has frustrated and bitten me numerous times.  I
frequently want to share code between setup.hs files and I know of no
clean way to do so.

(apologies if this is delivered twice.. I got a mailer daemon failure
the first time, so I'm manually entering the address now...)
