I pushed the last changes I wanted to make. I left the semantics of
cabal2arch unchanged so that any AUR helper that uses it may continue
working. I added a script "manycabal2arch" to cabal2arch that makes
use of the HackageTranslation module to produce a whole ABS tree from
00-index.tar and a given list of packages.

I have no other features to add for the next release.
