Comment (by duncan):

 A couple more item from the old TODO:

 ** error cases for parsing command-line args
 ** reading & writing configuration-dropping
 ** test / port code for Hugs
 In theory it works with hugs, in practice it does not get tested much.

 ** use-cases based on SimonPJ's doc
 This probably refers to the original [http://haskell.org/cabal/proposal/
 Cabal proposal] which presented some use cases. The idea would be to turn
 these into some test cases and make sure they go smoothly.
