Title: Add haskell packages to distribution

- openSUSE Distribution: Implementation
+ openSUSE Distribution: Done
Priority
Requester: Important

Requested by: Herbert Graeber (hgraeber)
Developer: Peter Trommler (ptrommler)
Partner organization: openSUSE.org

Description:
Haskell is an advanced purely-functional programming language. An open-
source product of more than twenty years of cutting-edge research, it
allows rapid development of robust, concise, correct software. With
strong support for integration with other languages, built-in
concurrency and parallelism, debuggers, profilers, rich libraries and
an active community, Haskell makes it easier to produce flexible,
maintainable, high-quality software.
Haskell packages currently live in devel:languages:haskell project

Business case (Partner benefit):
openSUSE.org: Most other major distributions have it:
http://hackage.haskell.org/platform/linux.html openSUSE is only to be
found under "Information for other systems" Haskell is required by
several applications that users have asked for: * Version control
system darcs:
