Bug#792698: libghc-chart-dev: Package is useless without at least one backend

Package: libghc-chart-dev
Version: 1.3.3-4
Severity: important

The Chart package has been reorganized, so that the rendering backends
are in separate packages, currently chart-cairo and
chart-diagrams. Neither of these seem to be packaged for Debian, which
I believe makes this package (libghc-chart-dev) useless, as it can't
produce output.
