Yes, that exactly is the problem. I'll try cabal-env/hsenv then.

One more workflow question: Wouldn't it make sense to make a branch on
GitHub for each released version of a package and bump the package
version on master directly after that? I know that there are tons of
ways working with git, but I think that this one is quite common and
makes a lot of sense to me.

Thanks for the hints,
