"cabal install" (i.e. using cabal-install, and specifically using
the "install" command) tracks dependencies, whereas...

this method does not, which only uses the Cabal library and nothing
more does not.

Also, Trent, I think the README may be a little out of date.  Could
you please freshen it up?


PS: I sometimes wish "Cabal" the library would be called "cabal-core"
and that "cabal-install" would be called "cabal", which I think would
end any confusion about about the relationship between the two.
