Ticket #380 (new enhancement)
Ability to blacklist packages that are on hackage

Sometimes there are packages on hackage that I don't want to install, perhaps ever. Maybe there is a buggy release I'm trying to avoid, or something of that nature.
So, my proposal is a user defined blacklist. I think the version specification could work just like that of a .cabal file.
I also think cabal should tell you when it skips a dependency due to blacklisting.
