 Consider adding a --with-package-conf= flag to the configure command,
 or the register command.

 There is partial support for this internally in Cabal, though only for GHC
 of course. We have to decide if and how we want to present this feature
 given that it is currently GHC-only. Could it be done in a way that allows
 other implementations to provide a similar feature in future without us
 having to change the Cabal user interface?
