in that case, should we switch to importing the hierarchical names in 
Happy/Alex-generated code, since everyone uses those these days?  I 
could make a patch to do that too.

I wonder if the change I originally proposed should go through the 
library submission process, which I'm not familiar enough with... 
http://www.haskell.org/haskellwiki/Library_submissions , okay, probably yes?

for alex, I can't figure out how to run the tests, as the Makefile in 
alex/tests/ doesn't work (after all it was cabalized?).

Also the darcs alex/alex.cabal says version: 2.1.0, whereas 
http://haskell.org/alex/ says the latest released version is 2.2 (not 
even 2.2.0, and maybe we would say these days!)
