Would a -dummy package bring apt to a sane upgrade path? Let's consier haskell-hdbc-doc (2.1.0-3) to haskell-hdbc-doc (XYZ) as built by haskell-doc-dummies. I assume that if (XYZ <= 2.1.0-3) then apt wouldn't consider it an upgrade? (Maybe a version number based on a value larger than the maximum of all affected binary package versions of -doc packages might work, haven't checked that yet). Likewise, as I've seen for hdbc, there's no package in stable, so it just might not be worth the trouble in the first place. (Despite for Ubuntu, we've got a release with the haskell-hdbc-doc package name). I haven't checked other packages though, maybe the list can be reduced a little bit though. Cheers, Stefan.
