Comment(by AnttiJuhaniKaijanaho):

 For me as a user, this feature request is obvious and it's rather
 disappointing that Cabal will not support it.  A simple makefile-based
 system, or even running ghc --make by hand!, does better on this count.

 What about allowing specifying a list of modules common to all
 executables?  That would help me.  (Or, of course, if the "private
 libraries" are lightweight enough that I just have to list the modules
 that are included in it, that's good enough.)
