I already sent the patches directly to cabal-devel, but they seem to have 
been dropped without notification by the mailing list engine. :-(

I hope the patch names are descriptive ...

I have made some changes that make Cabal work with JHC (partially). I'm 
certain, that it will no longer work with the version it was initially 
written for. But the Cabal.JHC module doesn't tell what version this might 
be. :-(
