Also, last year, I have made a contribution to cabal: Add generate
To give a bit of context, in "recent" versions of
cabal, a module (named
is generated, containing functions and bindings related to the package and the
This issue is: when you compile with Nix paths changes, which means that compiled code importing this module change (even if they don't use these paths), consequently useless recompilations are performed.
The idea (that was not my idea, an issue was already opened) was to generate another

It was merged some time ago, and shipped as part as
Sadly, I did not do a proper impacts study and, it occurs that an error can happen if we try to use it in earlier versions of
