I should have made this clearer, but I haven't actually checked yet. The 
changelog for 5.0.0 does, however, say "ghc-mod consumes much less memory than 
ghc-mod-4.1". I'll try to get it tested soon.

I haven't had time to do what you suggest in detail, but from a cursory manual 
look, I can see that ghc-mod introduces these new dependencies (over 
- async
- data-default
- djinn-ghc
- ghc-paths
- haskell-src-exts
- monad-journal
- pretty
- split
- text
- transformers-base

Of these, it seems to me at first glance that only djinn-ghc and monad-journal 
are not in Sid. The latter has no unpackaged dependencies, while the former 
needs djinn-lib.

In summary, if I'm not missing anything, ghc-mod would need to have 
djinn-ghc, djinn-lib and monad-journal packaged.
