I have to amend: The -doc packages would not actually have to conflict.
They don’t contain files of the same name (everything is
in /usr/share/doc/libghc6?-x-doc), and the ghc6-x-doc package installs
no haddock index file.

So we could skip introducing Conflicts (good). And I guess the question
of dummy packages for a smooth upgrade is somewhat independent of that
and can be taken care of in due course.
