register packages via triggers


I’d like to seize a suggestion from kaol and bring it up for discussion.

haskell packages not by maintainer scripts, but by putting the package

The advantage would be less maintainer scripts (thus reduced

Kaol, do you still think this is a worthwhile change? Do you already
