My original goal was to get xmonad into Fedora.  I found that
packaging Haskell packages requires some care, but can be done pretty
quickly, so I decided doing things in full would be better.  My
impression was that Bob and Jens were busy, and didn't have the time
to push things forward, so I figured the best way to do this would be
to do it myself.

In a way though, this is with some direction from Bob if not from Jens
as well, as the bulk of the standard is based on the design behind
Bob's program cabal-rpm.  I plan on putting together some changes, but
I've been delayed from one task to another.

Now that I have both Bob's and Jen's, I also want to say I want to ask
about making some changes to how GHC is packaged.  Again, it is
something I wanted to put together some details for first.
