Between and, cabal update started enforcing the require-sandbox option, and now can fail with:

cabal: 'require-sandbox' is set to True, but no sandbox is present.

I think this is too restrictive. Does anyone think otherwise?

As of Cabal, I'm having the same problem with cabal update, cabal list and cabal info. I don't think these commands should require the sandbox.

Halcyon includes a workaround for this issue.
