how can this be - if the re-installed package is compiled 
from the exact original source (as I just learned, cabal stores the sources)?

or do you mean "the dependent packages must be recompiled" - 
well, then cabal could just do it?

Of course I understand "lack of developer time".
Could any of this be forked out as student projects?
