"most likely" --- but it can fail.

The point of having projects is to ensure they can't conflict with each
other. If you install something in one and it's compatible with others, you
can use it without redownloading/recompiling (in effect it gets mirrored
into the new project). But if you slam everything into the global project,
you can set up conflicts similar to those you get with cabal-install
without sandboxes.
