Warning about missing modules in 'other-modules'

I now at least twice ran into the issue, that I forgot to add a module
to the 'other-modules' section of the cabal file and uploaded a non
buildable package to hackage.

It would be nice if 'cabal sdist' or 'cabal upload' would warn the user
about missing modules.

I just tried 'cabal upload -c', but I'm getting:

$ cabal upload -c dist/hsimport- 
Checking dist/hsimport-
Error: dist/hsimport- 404 Not Found
Error: Page not found

Sorry, it's just not here.

$ cabal --version
cabal-install version
using version 1.18.1 of the Cabal library

It seems that currently the best way to guarantee a buildable package is
to build the tarbar with 'cabal sdist' and then install this tarball
with 'cabal install', right?
