It's an open problem.

I make do with disposable sand-boxes, using cabal-dev to build them.  In
this way, I can keep many (of my) libraries building, even if different
libraries need incompatible versions of Hackage libraries.  If I run into a
problem in a library's build environment, I either fix it surgically or
nuke it, without affecting any other build environments.
