Sounds fine to me!  As long as you mean one or the other of .hspkg or
.hsproj, and we'll get rid of Setup.description.  Maybe the 0.3
release will allow Setup.description but give a warning that it's

Speaking of which, Ross, how close are you to having something for the
Hugs build and install work which you wouldn't mind having in the 0.3
release?  I'm itching to get some of the interface changes out there,
though unless we get a lot of happiness and consensus on them soon,
I'll keep the UserHooks out of it.
