Sorry, i meant ghci not cabal.

As for hsdev, in order to provide its features it will have to load and 
keep track of entire project information which is already done by ghc-mod 
and hdevtools separately. So you  ushould see how much effort is wasted on 
doing the same thing again and again in each of 4 different tools (ghci, 
ghc-mod, hdevtools and hsdev)
