Simply because it's (yet) another thing that neither Oleg nor I have got
around to doing, or figuring out how/what to do. (Looking now...) Seems
pretty simple. I see there's just one option to cabal's sdist:
--snapshot. Can anyone tell me if I should use this or not? Does it
matter much?

BTW, an ODBC implementation for Takusen is in the pipeline. The latest
patches in our darcs repo include some ODBC modules, although they're
far from finished. There are still quite a few issues to sort out.

After ODBC I think a FreeTDS (http://www.freetds.org/) implementation
would be a good idea, as this ought to give native (i.e. not via ODBC)
access to both MS Sql Server and Sybase.
