And there is yet longstanding problem:
'cabal test' always fails on hackage tarballs:

> runTestScript :: Args -> Bool -> PackageDescription -> LocalBuildInfo -> IO ()
> runTestScript _args _flag _pd _lbi
>  = maybeExit $ withCurrentDirectory "test" $ system "make"

$ time: cabal test -v
Creating ./dist/setup (and its parents)
./dist/setup/setup test --verbose=2
setup: test: does not exist

Can they be exposed to release tarball? (if they exist and still work)
Gentoo distribution supports for test running for just built packages
(very useful when try to build gentoo on exotic architectures) and
curretly time is one of rare failing ones.
