  * Partial rewrite of cabal list and info commands
  The new user target system requires a change in how cabal info works.
  Instead of just giving package names and looking them up in the
  available package index, we can now specify names with versions or
  version constraints which means we want the info to be about that
  version in particular. We now list many installed and available
  versions and mark which ones are preferred or not. Also fix a bug
  for packages that are only installed, not available.

    M ./Distribution/Client/List.hs -89 +243
    M ./Main.hs -2 +6
