I ran into this problem again. Tired of parsing the output of 'ghc-pkg
list' manually for duplicates, I wrote the following script that may
be of use for others too:
#! /usr/bin/env runhaskell
> import Data.List ( intersect )
> import Control.Monad ( liftM )
> import System.Process ( system, readProcess )
> main = do global <- list "global"
> user <- list "user"

You can save it as executable literate Haskell file. It will
unregister those packages from the user database that are present in
the global package database with the exact same version.
Underestimating the novelty of the future is a time-honored tradition.
