Could you please add a way of varying the title of the
Yackage web page? That would make it much easier to work
with multiple Yackages at once. For my particular setup,
including its port number in the web page title would do
the trick. But perhaps the easiest and most general thing
would be to add a command-line option for setting the

Using multiple Yackages is a very simple yet powerful
technique to keep cabal versions straight. You can
use it to group package versions in various ways -
versions that you are currently hacking on, versions that
have stabilized but you are not releasing yet while
you work on other related packages, versions shared
by various teams and subteams of developers, etc.

Multiple Yackages are especially useful in combination
with cabal-dev, but currently you have to fiddle a little
bit to get cabal-dev to use a modified cabal config file.
