Oh nevermind, looks like Petr got to that in his beta branch.

This is probably one of those false "good" ideas with all sorts of
hidden costs (for example, what does it mean when you have .cabal
files? do we still talk about Cabal packages?  Would you necessarily
need to use this "cabal" command to install them, etc?).  I guess we're
stuck with the status quo.
