+1. This topic is brought up here too many times. We should be glad
that there still are people willing to maintain Haskell packages

Now the Arch Haskell has a monopoly for all haskell packages and
frankly I don't see any advantage of it. In my opinion we should break
the monopoly and allow the users to maintain Haskell packages too.
It's reasonable to orphan packages which are out-of-date for a long
