When I run stack install package:exe1, It appears to only build exe1 but copy over both exe1 and exe2 into the path.

stack install fancy-api:fancy-api3 --flag fancy-api:-fdev

Is the package:component syntax supposed to work for upstream packages as well as local ones? I just had a glance over the code and it appears to only work (albeit with this bug) for local packages.

@gregwebs Should be fixed on master.

@mitchellwrosen No, it's only supposed to work for local stuff, much like flags. I've added a warning when a component is set in a way that it won't be used (arguably, this should be an exception instead).
