Comment(by duncan):

 I think the better solution for this use case is ticket #524 which is
 about making this possible:
 cabal install http://code.haskell.org/~user/foo/foo-0.9.tar.gz

 The problem with `--remote-repo` for this use case is that it creates a
 persistent local cache, which is not what you would want for a one-off
