I have cabal-install installed, and I'm thankful for it.
My problem is, when I do
cabal install foo
it downloads foo and its dependencies, builds and installs, but it doesn't 
generate the documentation.
How do I get it to build, install and link the documentation for all packages 
automatically, too?
