I wouldn't actually be opposed to this idea.

A lot of effort is duplicated with regards to Archlinux's official haskell
packages and Arch-Haskell's packages.

We could try to work out something between the existing haskell package
maintainers and arch-haskell maintainers.

It might lead to a possibly better overall haskell experience on archlinux.

Arch-haskell could maintain official haskell packages using pacman.
I (and anyone interested) could support haskell package installation using
the cabal-install route.
