you are right, we should do that. The tool-chain *almost* supports it.
The only thing that's missing is the ability to specify the $pkgrel to
depend on. I've opened a ticket here:


As soon as that ability has been added, we can re-generate the HABS tree
to specify dependencies with exact version numbers.

I would assume that this makes sense only for library packages, though,
right? Or is anyone aware of a reason why we might want to depend on a
very specific version of a tool like c2hs?

Take care,
