Here's what I wrote last time this was discussed:


which is pretty much what Snoyman said in his follow-up here.  To me, 
stack is trying to solve the same problems as hsenv, as well as the same 
problems as cabal-install, as well as some problems that neither 
solves.  And although there's overlap between cabal-install and stack, 
that's not the same as saying there's overlap between stack.yaml and 
.cabal files.
