1. "ghc-pkg check" is incomplete: It ignores shadowing problems, which
are like 99% of the problems in practice. Skip "ghc-pkg check", go
straight to "ghc -v" for the real report card.
2. "ghc-pkg unregister" has a long-standing bug. I have filed it as
In practice, 99% of the time you use "--user", so the message for you is
that before you order "ghc-pkg unregister --user blah", make sure you
have a "blah" in the user database. Every time.
(In particular, I have seen someone ordering the same "--user" command
twice for no good reason, and the first time succeeded, and therefore
the second time happily went ahead to mess with the global database.)
