This will be ready for merging soon (hopefully before the end of
September). My plan is to use the built-in parallel --make on GHC >=
7.8 (according to  it will be available in the next release), and
the new ghc-parmake on older GHCs.
I also have some ideas on how to speed-up incremental builds, but that
will take a bit more time.
On the topic of future plans, other important features are:
* cabal uninstall
* Nix-like immutable package database
() ascii ribbon campaign - against html e-mail
/\ www.asciiribbon.org - against proprietary attachments
