Command to install dependencies of a package.

Something like cabal install-deps or install --deps-only or such. We spoke about this with Duncan and this is the proposed solution to my use-case:
I have a project that basically consists of a simple shebang haskell script (go.hs), which happens to have somewhat obscure dependencies. I am not interested in building a binary out of this script, nor installing it: but I'd like to use cabal to track and automatically install the dependencies for it. Hence, I would provide a cabal file, whose main purpose would be for people to run "cabal install-deps", which would enable them to run ./go.hs directly...
Hopefully it is clear what I mean here... Don't hesitate to prod me if you have better suggestions, or, questions...
