I'll help with rebuild of haskell packages in [community]. I'd like to keep
xmonad/xmonad-contrib/xmobar in [community] since it's nice to have
these common haskell applications. (although pkgstats tells me otherwise
;) )

So maybe haskell-gtk (and related deps: haskell-pango, haskell-glib, haskell-cairo can go)

There are some haskell libraries which are standalone and nothing
depends on:
- haskell-http
- haskell-zlib
- haskell-tar
- haskell-regex-compat
- haskell-regex-posix

I'd suggest we remove those!
