I think your proposal may be clearer to you than to everyone else. It's
always hard to reconstruct a detailed proposal by reading long email
Suggestion: if you feel strongly about this, why not start a Wiki page
(you can link to it from the current one) to describe the design you
propose, at a comparable level of detail?
Incidentally, compatibility with Cabal is a significant goal.
