 I'm trying to package a large Haskell project (currently built using make)
 to Cabal, and although we only want to expose around a dozen modules, the
 implementation of those modules uses hundreds of other modules.  It seems
 like I need to explicitly list each of these hidden modules in the .cabal
 file in order to generate a library that will link correctly.  Ideally, I
 could just say what the exposed modules are, and have every other module
 hidden by default.
