That's certainly a good idea, but we would have to encode the package
name in the PKGBUILD to retrieve it easily. The best option would be
to have cabal-install as a library so that we could access it from
Haskell. I don't want to use IOs for something that should be a pure
function. Do you know why cabal-install contains libraries not in
cabal ?
