Fwiw, I've been using haskell-mode with "cabal repl" successfully
myself, and I've pushed preliminary "cabal repl" support to the public
Github repo recently[1]; I've also added a workaround to be able to use
ghci-ng w/ "cabal repl"[2]. So I really hope "cabal repl" gets released
as part of 1.18.0, as it's already working quite nicely and IMHO
represents a big improvement over cabal-dev in its current state.
