I have few more questions, I couldn't find answer on my own, even if
they mostly seem silly :-) If there's resolutions requiring coding,
I'll try to follow up with patches.
* Are extended fields going to be part of public interface (HEAD
Cabal doesn't warn for fields starting "x-")?
* Could we document what's allowed format/character set for file
specified by license-file? (cabal2wix needs to make rtf from the
text to show it during install - I'd like to know if that's going
to be sensibly possible.)
* Is ghc-pkg supposed to handle license-file field? GHC documents it,
referring to Cabal docs, but Cabal doesn't generate it for
installed-pkg-config. (Maybe because license file is not
* Are defaultMain-helpers supposed to turn relative paths from
commandline into absolute ones? (I ran into this problem with Alex'
Setup.lhs, which changes working directory for copying files.)
