Another nice feature: Say you want to hack on the darcs version of a
project, but you need to install the dependencies. If the project is
Cabalised you can build and install the darcs version as well as all
dependencies by calling 'cabal install' with no arguments inside the
$ darcs get <project>
$ cd <project>
$ cabal install
Push the envelope. Watch it bend.
