Makes sense to me (and I'll send a quick little patch)

The only place where we should keep external- is for
external-bytestring, because there the issue is that GHC 6.6
accidentally shipped with bytestring in the base package, so I think
Duncan wanted to distinguish between that bytestring and the external
bytestring.  On the other hand, I should tag that with another sunset.
Gone after darcs 2.3
