There's a dh addon in haskell-devscripts, which I wrote, but hlibrary.mk
is being more actively maintained and is compatible with the current
policy, while dh_haskell* and the dh addon still install files in old

At first I thought it was a good idea to have more than one option to
build haskell packages, but now I think it'll be difficult to maintain,
cause it'll cause double work at each haskell policy change.
