cabal-get can detect when you already have something installed. cabal-install should do this too, and not install stuff that's already installed? unless you give --force options

This works in cabal-install, at least with GHC (using ghc-pkg). Requesting to let Cabal manage packages itself should be done in a separate ticket.
