 Ideally, a build system would not only be purely functional but lazy: if
 two executables list common modules under `Other-Modules` and the compile
 options are the same then the common modules should be compiled only once.

 I think this should happen automatically without user intervention. The
 proposed `All-Executables` section would help reduce duplication in cabal
 files but I don't think it should be necessary to share compilation
 results for multiple executables without making a library to depend upon.
