Sounds like you are on the right track, Eric.  Write down our  
dependency information in the most widely understood machine-readable  
format we can find, the better to communicate among potential  
packagers, users, developers, etc..

I know next to nothing about the technical details of the cabal  
format, but since it is the de facto standard for Haskell  
programmers, then it is obviously the right language to speak in to  
communicate with them.
