hsc2hs gives different output on different platforms, so anyone building
from source needs it, not just those building from darcs.
Regardless, it would be good to merge whatever differences there are
between ghc's hsc2hs and the standalone one and then have ghc grab the
canonical hsc2hs with darcs-all.
If you meant hsc2hs should be a dependency even for people building from
a tarball, then that is Simon's call.
