Bug#642288: RFP: cabal-dev -- Manage sandboxed Haskell build environments

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist

* Package name    : cabal-dev
  Version         : 0.8
  Upstream Author : Josh Hoyt <j3h@galois.com>, Jonathan Daughtery <jtd@galois.com>, Rogan Creswick <creswick@galois.com>
* URL             : http://hackage.haskell.org/package/cabal-dev
* License         : BSD (3-clause)
  Programming Lang: Haskell
  Description     : Manage sandboxed Haskell build environments

cabal-dev is a tool for managing development builds of Haskell projects.
It supports maintaining sandboxed cabal-install repositories, and
sandboxed ghc package databases.

For most packages, just use cabal-dev instead of cabal, and you will get
a sandboxed build that will not install anything (even automatically
installed dependencies) into the user or global ghc package databases.
You can also add local sources for patched or unreleased libraries.
