BTW, there is a bug in Cabal that prevents proper installation on unix
machines if the .cabal has been generated on a Windows machine. I
posted about it on Haskell cafe. Basically Cabal doesn't handle the
way Windows does end of lines properly. So if my application name is
'sample' and I try to install it on Unix I'll end up with 'sample^M'.
The workaround is easy - just convert the .cabal file to Unix style
EOL, but it would be nice if this were fixed.
