Right, and at least in some of the haskell packages we explicitly 
disable debuginfo.  That could probably be included in a sample haskell 
spec file.

Agree, probably not - at least non to date.  Though I was tinkering a 
little recently with the idea of put .a files into -devel and .o files 
into the library packages, but I am not sure yet if it makes full sense 
or would be useful.  Perhaps we should ship .o files anyway rather than 
generating them at install time.
