Changes (by duncan):

  * milestone:  => Cabal-1.6


 In particular Cabal-1.6 added new syntax for:

  * version ranges `foo == 1.0.*`
  * source control repos
  * wildcards in the `data-files` and `extra-source-files` fields.
  * and we should allow new licenses, requiring cabal >= 1.4

 The only tricky one to detect at the moment is the version ranges as they
 are not reflected in the abstract syntax tree.
