If I'm getting this correctly, than Halberd uses some kind of static database, right?

I think the nice approach of 'vim-hsimport' is, that by using 'hdevtools' in
conjunction with a 'cabal sandbox', only the modules of the packages are considered,
which your project depends on, and this information is dynamically "established"
by 'hdevtools' reading the package database of the 'cabal sandbox'.

But I have to confess, that hsimport/vim-hsimport are still in a quite early stage.
