 I'd like to have a package with several binaries which all use a
 convenience library included in that same package. The convenience library
 should NOT be installed. For this to work, Cabal needs two things.
 Firstly, it must allow dependencies within a package such that I could
 describe the library and have the binaries depend on it. Secondly, it
 should have an "installable" flag, similar to "buildable". A thing that's
 not installable would be built but not installed. The same mechanism could
 be used for package-internal tools.
