 This should be possible. It is what the ghc build system does. There
 should be enough stuff exported from the Cabal library for you to be able
 to do this.

 Indeed it should be possible to use that in a custom cabal package build
 system. Part of the Cabal architecture is that you can use any build
 system you like for a package and still get all the automated package
 management. It has certainly worked in the past (see franchise). If
 there's anything preventing it, file a ticket.

 I don't plan to add this feature to the Cabal library itself however.
