I must admit that I prefer to have haskell-mode and erlang-mode
be not part of Emacs' repo.
I find it favorable to have an up-to-date custom-managed or
package.el managed version.
For example with cc-mode, if Alan didn't agree to update it
soon in Emacs bzr, I was about to build and use a copy
in ~/.emacs.d.

In summary: we shouldn't try to add more big packages to Emacs,
especially not such which see more frequent releases than Emacs.
We have package support for a reason, don't we?

I will contact the erlang-mode maintainer, just to let him know,
