The latest released cabal-install does what you want here.
$ cabal install cabal-install

That also works in the latest version.
$ cabal install foo
$ cabal upgrade foo

The difference between install and upgrade is whether the dependencies
are also upgraded or not. In Gentoo they call this 'deep' upgrades.
