usually I install haskeline without terminfo, because I don't miss any
functionality and try to avoid installing unused packages.
I do so either manually (and global) via Setup or by:
cabal install -f -terminfo haskeline
However, when I install another package that depends on haskeline (i.e.
"cabal install pugs") it will reinstall terminfo and haskeline.
It does not reinstall haskeline if I manually install terminfo by "cabal
install terminfo", although my old (global) haskeline package does not
depend on the new (local) terminfo package.
1. What do I gain when I use haskeline with terminfo?
2. How can I convince "cabal install <pkg-depending-on-haskeline>" to
use my installed haskeline version without terminfo?
Where is more documentation for the flags?
