Speaking of which, has anyone considered an extensible cabal-install
interface, something like what git provides? It seems somewhat unreasonable
to me to require stuff like this to be added by recompiling, if
cabal-install can be taught to look for plugins (external commands,
ghc-api, or whatever).
This would make experimenting with things like this (or cabal sandbox)
easier and possibly ease upgrades.
