It's a valid complaint, and there's ongoing work to fix some of these
issues. In the meantime, the development version of cabal-install, in
particular the new modular solver, can deal with a few situations that
can't be resolved by older cabal-install versions. I can't promise it
will help here. But I'm still interested in feedback.
