Hi Ryan.

That's right.

They will be included in a future release. In cabal-install-0.14.0,
they currently couldn't be included, because in their current form
they require some changes to the Cabal library, and it was one of the
criteria for the release of cabal-install-0.14.0 that it must build
with Cabal-1.14 as shipped with ghc-7.4.1.

I also hope that the time between cabal-install releases will be
somewhat shorter from now on :)
