Comment (by waern):


 If we are lifting flags from other commands into the install flags, we
 should have different lifting mechanisms for different flags. Take the
 haddock flags as an example: --hoogle should keep its name but imply
 --enable-haddock. The other flags should have --haddock- prefixed to their
 names, but require the --enable-haddock flag to be explicitly set.

 Or, we could just disallow these flags and use a configuration file.

 In any case, I think all of these flags would be useful also for the
 install command (the --internal flag being a border-line case).

 In the future I hope --enable-haddock (or equivalent mechanism) will be
 enabled by default.
