 This is a long-standing problem. Cabal currently relies on `ghc --make` to
 do the dependency chasing, so Cabal doesn't actually know which modules
 are needed, which is part of the reason they all need to be listed.

 The major feature that would fix this (and several related features) is to
 implement a make-style module/file dependency framework (see #15).
