It is generated as part of the build process and is included in the source
tarball. See cabalFileRule in SourceTarball.hs

It was much easier to generate the .cabal file from a richer description of
how the packages that make up the platform are included than to derive that
information from comments in the .cabal file like we were doing.

Especially (pet peeve) because .cabal comments can only appear between
directives, not one lines that are within directives.
