 It would be great if once I found a bug and/or a means to fix that bug, I
 could report it uniformly, rather than go to the homepage of the specific
 package and hope that they have a trac site.

 cabal report <packagename> [-f<attachfile>] [-f<anotherfile>] <Bug

 Perhaps a new field can be added to each package: "Report mail recipient"
 or "Report website" into which these bug reports will go. Alternatively,
 if no such field exists, it could go to a default bug mailing list or
