hothasktags only produces VIM ctag files but no emacs etag files. Emacs haskell-
mode seems to expect and only support hasktags.

I just did an experimental packaging of hasktags just by running 
    cabal-debian --debianize --quilt
over the code as explained in


I've never ever had such a great packaging experience in any other language!

I reviewed the source code and signed it:

I would be very thankful, if somebody with more debian-haskell experience 
could package (and maybe even backport) hasktags. As I wrote, it seems to be 
the only missing part to set up a basic but productive emacs based development 
environment on Debian.
