We could even set up NotOnHackage: a "package" repository just like
Hackage, except the packages are just documentation on why there is no
such package. Implementation-wise it's just a wiki; but the idea is about
how to organize the wiki. NotOnHackage should be organized and searchable
similar to Hackage itself, so that people can look there when nothing
looks promising on Hackage.
