Ticket #426 (new enhancement)
.cabal files should be stored next to tarballs, potentially overriding in-tarball version

.cabal files are *the* description of cabal packages, yet cabal/hackage hide them inside the package tarballs. For easy access, I would like the local package cache to store a copy of the .cabal file right next to the tarball. Changes in the out-of-package .cabal should override the original, in-package .cabal, allowing bug-fixing/adaptation to local packaging issues.
