I don't mind changing the name. But hs2c suggests that it converts
Haskell modules into C modules. In reality it is closer to the
opposite. Unfortunately the name c2hs was already taken :-)
The order of languages in the file extension .hsc is a different
issue. It may be viewed as a shorthand for .hs+c: Haskell with bits
of C embedded.
Taking file extensions as the starting point, the name hsc2hs would
be IMHO clear.
