Multi-library/package support for cabal

Hi Bardur, is another bug that seems like
it could be related. The idea is to use a single sandbox across multiple
packages so if you have a directory layout like


If you were to then:

cd top, cabal sandbox init, cd library2, cabal install, cd ../library1,
cabal install, cd ../application, cabal install

The packages library1, library2 and their dependencies would all be
installed in the sandbox in top and the cabal install inside the
application directory would resolve dependencies from that sandbox. Each
folder would still maintain its own cabal configuration so global analysis
wouldn't be possible (or on the other hand, necessary).
