Ah, thank you, that does the trick. So the situation is that you can
1. `cabal configure --enable-tests`
2. change the `test-suite` section
3. still run `cabal test`, and it just uses the old settings
This does indeed give me the warning
./opaleye.cabal has been changed. Re-configuring with most recently used
options. If this fails, please run configure manually
but I still find the behaviour a bit odd. Anyway, I now understand what is
