sounds also fine. According to
this would break
* github which, in violation of PVP has no upper bound on the uri
version, and hence cannot complain about builds failing
* hellnet, same
* trajectory, same
* isohunt, which is safe due to a <0.2 version constraint
* an unknown quantify of private non-hackaged code
So it seems the impact of a non-compatible upload to uri would be low.
The question is more likely: Do maintainers have a strong ownership of
names they claim on hackage, or do we liberally take over names when it
is for the greater good? In Debian, such a name-take-over would be
highly controversial, but I’m not saying that this is a good thing.
