Please don't. I have a plan in the back of my mind to add cabal support
to dh (specifically dh_auto_*), and these might prove useful there.

I don't like the idea of keeping them in the package while they're not
compliant to the Haskell policy.  Maybe we should remove them now, and
then reintegrate when there's a compliant version of them, and someone
wanting to maintain they in accord to the policy and the behaviour of

Do you think this is a bad idea?

I would like them to be kept around somehow so I can work on them.. Perhaps
they could be left in the source package but not installed into the binary?

Or we could have another branch for debhelper integration. Darcs doesn't have conceptually easy branching, but we can do this if need be.
