Curly braces can be used to replace the layout rule in cabal file. This features seems to go wrong when curly braces are used in the description field, where they are also replaced by line breaks or something similar.

This is inconvenient for those trying to give good documentation already in the description, e.g.
http://hackage.haskell.org/package/BlogLiterately
and
http://hackage.haskell.org/package/hamlet

Curly braces inside the description (or probably inside any field) should be left alone; or at least some escaping mechanisms needs to be provided.
