Source directories added to the sandbox using cabal sandbox add-source should be rebuilt, if needed, by e.g. cabal build.

I think that it should be also possible to disable this behaviour. For example, when working on Cabal, I only run cabal-dev install Cabal/ cabal-install/ when I have changed something in the Cabal lib; usually cabal-dev install cabal-install/ is sufficient.

#1118 contains an initial implementation.

I think this is better solved by having minimal rebuilds, instead of forcing the user to think about what needs rebuilding.

I agree, but in the meanwhile the expert users could benefit from this.

Filed #1121 so that we don't forget about minimal rebuilds.
