ok how about a pragma: Annotating modules

You can annotate modules with the ANN pragma by using the module keyword.
For example:

{-# ANN module (Just "A `Maybe String' annotation") #-}


if the topic is *Standard package file format*, why not agree on e.g.
adopting *GenericPackageDescription* or another similar haskell type
(rather than a text-based file) as the standard?

then any format (cabal, yaml, json, ...) may be used as long as a library
exists and is maintained for each such format,  which parses / produces the
format from / to the standard type?

how about this?
