[Pkg-haskell-maintainers] Bug#635754: make libghc-foo-doc Recommend libghc-foo-dev

Package: haskell-devscripts
Version: 0.8.7
Severity: normal

I suggest changing the current Suggests to a Recommends, this way
when installing a new haskell library we can just install the -doc, and
not need to do additional typing to get the -dev. Recommends seem the
appropriate relationship, since it would be unusual (but not unheard of)
for the -doc to be installed without the -dev. It does not seem
appropriate to have the -dev recommend the -doc as it will be used on
eg, autobuilders.
