happs now supported in AUR

The downgrade of HaXml to 1.13 allows us to finally build the HAppS web framework in AUR.HAppS is now fully supported in Arch, as you can see.

HApps is a web framework for Haskell, (a la Ruby on Rails),

A web framework for developers to prototype quickly, deploy painlessly, scale massively, operate reliably, and change easily

So bring on the Haskell web apps!
