 Thanks for those patches. Here are some comments:

 Usually the best way to submit patches is as darcs patches. If you decide
 to make darcs patches, I suggest you separate the HTTP-4000 changes from
 the rest.

 The version constraints on the Cabal and zlib version are fine for this
 release. We cannot easily make it work with both Cabal-1.6 and 1.7 so the
 cabal-install-0.6.x series will continue to use Cabal-1.6.x. At some point
 the development version of cabal-install will start tracking the
 development version Cabal-1.7.x. We use zlib < 0.6 because we know that
 the 0.5 api is compatible but we do not know that about the 0.6 release
 because it does not exist yet.

 If you want to send in patches to silence warnings, keep that patch
 separate from the other patches.
