Well, it's not *really* a package manager, but it seems to be growing in
that direction... :)

Anyway, any users of Snap are probably going to be developers, and I
think it's pretty par for the course for developers to install libraries
they're using from Hackage.

I would recommend using "hsenv" for keeping per-project Cabal
environments. (The new Cabal will have support for similar isolation,
but I don't think it's really been released yet.)
