Actually, both done already:

#44 Hugs does not provide version numbers for installed packages
which I commented on. Ross had already suggested to install the full

#81 support --version flag
filed by yours truly 2 months ago.

Ross mentions in #44 that InstalledPackageInfo is somewhat ghc-specific.
I'd like to know if there's specifically anything that would cause
problems for hugs. We've been designing cabal-install on the assumption
that eventually every implementation would catch up and provide full
InstalledPackageInfo. If it is inappropriate info for hugs we need to
fix it now.
