I don't think so.

I don't think so neither.

I think this is a good option.  Or maybe it's time to create a standard
name for packages, which I propose to be libghc6-$(CABAL_PACKAGE)-DOC.
At first we would make hlibrary.mk build only in this format, and ask
maintainers to do their next upload using this standards.  We could also
warn the ftp team about this change, so that they could maybe treat
these packages faster in new.  What do you think?
