Actually I did write the code for such a thing a while back, but never finished
it off. There's a design choice; do you want
- GHCi to understand .cabal files, or
- Cabal to launch GHCi
I concluded that the latter would be better, because then any hooks in your
Setup.hs file still work, for example. I think this would make a nice
bitesized task for someone who wants to do some Cabal hacking.
