Cabal bug, times two and a half

I tried reporting a Cabal bug via Trac, but I can't log in as 
guest/haskell.  Alas.

The bug is that "runhaskell Setup.hs --enable-library-profiling" doesn't 
imply -auto-all with ghc, so the profiled library contains only manual 
cost centres - in other words, it never shows up in profile output.

The second bug is that the only way I can find to override or add 
compiler flags is to edit a .cabal file by hand.  This makes it scarily 
easy to capture unintended flags when committing changes :-(
