Ticket #285 (assigned enhancement)
How about add response file support for long command line argument list

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
