FWIW, this is what I plan to allow in jhc for just that reason. (it
would also allow the reexporting module to be re-optimized with a
smaller world assumption, with the caveat being possible code
duplication for programs that use Jhc.* directly)
although jhc libraries and ghc packages arn't quite the same, they are
pretty similar in most user-visible ways.
