Whoever starts on this should not start from scratch. We now have
several of these tools so there's lots of code to look at but ideally we
should be sharing more code.

One possible plan I have is for cabal-install to be a lib and a tool
because there's a lot of useful code in there that these tools could
re-use and share.
