please porters. But we could have a separate tool in our tools
repository, of course.
Ideally, we’d have a tool that parses the build dependencies, parses the
control file, find out what dependencies correspond to what Cabal
packages, updates the build dependencies in the control file, while
preserving whitespace, indentation and everything else, and is smart
about things like epoch in the version.
Maybe the augeas library can provide the nasty details?
