I would like to strive to find objective data on the use of
extensions. I started a table here which summarizes how popular
extensions are in real-life code. We need more data points, though.
I have a short program which queries the hackage database, gets some
details about all of the packages there, and summarizes them into a
table. Right now, there really aren't that many packages on
HackageDB, but hopefully more will appear.
HackageDB is here:
You can upload packages with Cabal-Put, but it's pretty hackish right

A list of cabal packages that might be good for uploading is here:
The more packages we get into HackageDB, the more accurate objective
data we can build. Let me know if you want to help!
