Comment(by gtirloni):

 This is the output of cabal-install 0.10.2 for a package that was already

 $ cabal install HTTP
 Resolving dependencies...
 No packages to be installed. All the requested packages are already
 If you want to reinstall anyway then use the --reinstall flag.

 Does it satify this ticket's request?
