Hi Clinton,

I've never used 'stack', but I think it mostly boils down to setting the
appropriate snapshot dependency constraints and ghc version for the 'cabal'
run and therefore 'cabal-bounds'[1] should work in the same way as for
a direct 'cabal' run.

'cabal-bounds' only widdens the version bounds of a dependency, so
calling it for builds of multiple 'stack' snapshots should work.

So building your package for each snapshot and just calling
'cabal-bounds update' might just work.
