Big +1 here. Cabal is the biggest thing keeping me from aggressively
promoting Haskell in industry. The risk of promoting Haskell now is
that people will try out Haskell, hit a cabal issue, give up, and then
form a bad opinion of Haskell because of it.

There is saying "If a user has a bad experience, that's a bug."

I've been patiently awaiting the Backpack overhaul before promoting
Haskell in the workplace. [1]
