[Haskell-cafe] Removing/Uninstalling cabal packages ?

I have been doing a few experiments with cabal packages lately and I  
wish to uninstall these to return to a cleaner package base. However,  
there doesn't seem to be a "cabal uninstall" command and reading the  
documentation at http://www.haskell.org/ghc/docs/latest/html/Cabal/index.html 
  does not tell much about how to do that manually.

Note that what I wish to do is both delete the installed files and the  
cabal database so that the uninstalled packages does not show anymore  
when running "cabal list --installed".

Would anyone know how to do that ?
Thanks in advance.
