ghc-boot: Shared functionality between GHC and its boot libraries
This library is shared between GHC, ghc-pkg, and other boot libraries.
A note about GHC.PackageDb: it only deals with the subset of the package database that the compiler cares about: modules paths etc and not package metadata like description, authors etc. It is thus not a library interface to ghc-pkg and is not suitable for modifying GHC package databases.
The package database format and this library are constructed in such a way that while ghc-pkg depends on Cabal, the GHC library and program do not have to depend on Cabal.
