We do something like this, though it's not quite the same. We have two
'remote-repo' lines in our cabal config, one for the regular hackage,
and one internal. For branch sandboxes, we remove the second one (this
is using cabal-dev) to only build our own packages from source.

But as said, this is using cabal-dev. I just thought I'd mention it as
a use case: removing one remote-repo while keeping another. I'm not
sure how cabal sandboxes handle remote-repo configuration lines in a
cabal.config in the sandbox. Do they add or override?
