    I just found some more info: this functionality is provided by the third party cabal-edit tool. This is the specific issue that tracks the integration of that functionality into cabal itself. One of the problems of the cabal-edit tool is that it sometimes messes up your cabal files. We need the exact-printing to avoid that.
