For example, question 8 is about whether Cabal should also build static
libraries for a dynamic-by-default compiler. We would like to ship a
version of Cabal that does the right thing with GHC 7.6.2. That will
hopefully mean that by the time GHC 7.8 is released, people will have a
Haskell Platform that contains a cabal-install that knows the right way
to build things for GHC 7.8.
