Hey guys, let's use the mailing list :)

Paolo, have you pushed this?  Or sent it to cabal-devel?

Great work.  So what Paolo is saying is that the simple versin of
cabal-get is ready, we just have to get the new very-simple version of
cabal-put working and installed on hackage.

There are pleanty of tweaks to do, though they may not be reflected in
the ticket system.  Alson, if you want to hack, please grab the latest
cabal sources and see what we've done.  Look at lately-modified
tickets on the wiki to get some context.
