This is what configurations are designed for. Until we have them I think
the best thing is to have the packages in hackage work with the current
releases (I think ghc and hugs have pretty much the same libraries; I'm
not sure about nhc/yhc/jhc/... off the top of my head).

Hopefully before we have an incompatible new hugs/ghc release we'll have
a Cabal with configurations.
