 Replying to [ticket:368 guest]:
 > Running cabal install $package with "optimization: True" uncommented in
 ~/.cabal/config results in an error:
 > cabal: Command.optionToFieldDescr: feature not implemented


 optimisation: True

 instead of

 optimization: True

 in ~/.cabal/config works! So the only thing that's broken is the code
 which generates the default ~/.cabal/config with the line

 -- optimization: True
