Tracking ticket so I don't forget. Based on feedback on #ghc, it sounds like it would be helpful if library names on the file system only had their full package name, e.g. as opposed to the abbreviated package name. Additionally, it seems less necessary to provide the abbreviated package name in linker symbols, since the modules often give a pretty good clue (and the package key can be looked up.) So let's do this, and make things better for users.
