Archiving the packages is good, and especially making to
documentation available for other packages to link into.

It seems this would still be covered if everything else was left how it is,
but the .cabal file for the packages were removed from the package index in
00-index.tgz. Having found

I'll see whether that's as easily done as said.

I don't know of any concrete projects along those lines,
so this doesn't seem to argue for anything beyond point 1).
I suppose another project probably would want to share
the template haskell source, but I expect it would end up
being part of their equivalent of boot libraries.
