Since cabal-install is part of HP I expect that the version specified
in HP 2011.2.0.0 *will* compile with the version of GHC specified :-)

It looks like what we have now is good, but let's keep it in [staging]
for now.  Hopefully the final version of HP won't require huge
changes.  I think that moving GHC7 + other packages to [extra] can
happen as soon as HP 2011.2.0.0 is released.
