Perhaps such metainformation about modules should belong to individual
modules. Not necessarily kept inside module source, but installed along
with modules. I imagine that after the hierarchic module namespace
is introduced, ghc's packages will lose some significance.
This makes linked libraries and #included files dependent on imported
modules, to allow moving detailed dependencies from Makefiles (where
-packages are specified) to sources.
