Description

Here is my origin post for cabal-install https://github.com/haskell/cabal/issues/1681

After install a lot of hackages, it seems impossible to regenerate an overall local document index. As for my case, with 160+ hackages, the command line argument list is more than 50k characters long, where the limitaion on Windows is 32768.

As Mikhail suggested on the link above, this problem could be solved by adding support for response file http://gcc.gnu.org/wiki/Response_Files

If Cabal folk decide that they want to support this then I don't mind implementing it using a flag.

Cabal is willing to support this so I'll implement it.
