I have forked cabal-rpm (with due credits to you, and the code is still GPL) 
that does generation of the Fedora specific SPEC file only, with the new 
macros.  I chose to do that because there were too many changes I needed to 
get some things right, and get rid of other stuff (like executing rpmbuild) 
that were irrelevant for my purposes.  

I would publish the code once it becomes half stable and somewhat working.  

Please don't take this otherwise, as your code is absolutely great Haskell 
work and I learned some finer Haskell coding styles while studying your code.
