Thanks Mikhail When you make the release, do advertise to us non-Cabal-experts about the new no-reinstall ability and how to use it. It's a game-changer.
Edward's blog post describes the issue http://blog.ezyang.com/2015/09/is-no-reinstall-cabal-coming-to-ghc-8/ Having another blog post describing the solution would be excellent; with pointers from the Cabal home page.
