Changes (by duncan):

  * priority:  high => normal
  * severity:  major => normal
  * milestone:  => Cabal-1.8


 In the end we decided to only push the first patch with the actual fix.
 The other patches which try and make the API nicer/clearer we'll leave off
 for the 1.6.x branch since they change the API. In the development branch
 we'll do something similar as mentioned in comment:2.

 Lowering the priority as the fix is now in the 1.6 branch. We can keep
 this ticket open for the fix to be done properly in the development
 branch. Setting the milestone for the next major version.
