Aye, for the implementation flavours that's probably the way to go once
we have use-deps. We'll have to hold off on multiple versions of the
same compiler though.

It might get a bit hairy though :-)

DEPEND="ghc?  ( dev-haskell/foo @ ghc )
	hugs? ( dev-haskell/foo @ hugs )
	yhc? ( dev-haskell/foo @ yhc )
	jhc? ( dev-haskell/foo @ jhc )"

(I've not looked up what the use-dep syntax is, I'm just guessing)
