 Usual scenario:

 Bob has a bunch of packages for personal use he does not want or cannot
 upload to hackage. All he needs is a public_html folder, his packages in
 tar.gz files, and a bit of help to set up a private static hackage repo.

 RubyGems allows this with the ''generate_index'' command, see
 [http://rambleon.org/2008/08/01/creating-your-own-gem-server-redux/ here].

 Since cabal-install supports multiple package sources already, the only
 thing missing is a command to generate the index and directory structure.
