You can put Depends: ${haskell:Depends} or the like in the control file. You
can't do that for Build-Depends, however (and you can't in rpm either,
AFAICT). But it wouldn't be hard to write a tool (or is there one, already) to
check and update control file against cabal and let the maintainer confirm
