    Packages can now be added/removed from an installed GHC as follows:
    
        $ ./ghc-inplace --list-packages
        gmp, rts, std, lang, concurrent, data, net, posix, text, util,
        hssource, win32, com, std2
        $ ./ghc-inplace --add-package <newpkg
        Reading package info from stdin... done.
        Saving old package config file... done.
        Writing new package config file... done.
        $ ./ghc-inplace --list-packages
        gmp, rts, std, lang, concurrent, data, net, posix, text, util,
        hssource, win32, com, std2, mypkg
        $ ./ghc-inplace --delete-package mypkg
        Saving old package config file... done.
        Writing new package config file... done.
        $ ./ghc-inplace --list-packages
        gmp, rts, std, lang, concurrent, data, net, posix, text, util,
        hssource, win32, com, std2
    
    This is a first stab at the kind of functionality we need for
    installing Haskell libraries via RPMs: the RPM script would install
    the libraries, and then do a "ghc --add-package" passing the
    appropriate paths.  You'd then have "ghc -package" at your disposal to
    use the newly installed package.  Similarly on de-install, the RPM
    script would run "ghc --delete-package".
    
    Also in this commit: prettify the package dumping.
