As Shae mentioned, it's in haskell-unsafe so far. Since Cabal is still
very much a moving target, we've kept it and the packages using it out
of sid for now, while we're trying to figure out what the Haskell
Policy should look like. Also, it's probably not a good idea to let
these things propagate to sarge yet (I know, I know, we can file bugs
to do that, but since we already have a repository why not use it)

You do know that Isaac is a DD too, right? I saw your cabal ITP, have
you talked to Isaac about it?
