I have spent 30min trying to make sense of the Haskabelle makedist and
lib/regression process. My impression is that it is generally lagging
behind GHC updates, although I am not proficient with that.

So for now (Isabelle/9ee2480d10b7) the old Haskabelle-2015 is ignored.

If it is updated on time during November, it can be still included in
Isabelle2016-1. If not, there is another chance to publish it as
independent Isabelle component. If that also does not come to pass,
Haskabelle will get lost in time and space -- the usual fate of tools
that are not fully integrated into the Isabelle repository and
development process.
