I took haskell-hgl from Squeeze ( and refreshed the packaging a
bit to make it at least current for Wheezy. I added some Quilt patches
to transition to the new Control.Exception try/catch and replaced the
use of Control.Concurrent.Chan with Control.Concurrent.STM.

It builds cleanly in a *Wheezy* and *Sid* chroots. And everything I've
written on top of HGL works as expected.

Patches have already been forwarded upstream.

Shall I create a new repo and push? Is the old package going to revive
and I push on top? Please advise on how to proceed.

If you can't aptitude it, it isn't useful or doesn't exist.
