Changes (by kosmikus):

  * priority:  normal => low
  * milestone:  cabal-install-0.14 => cabal-install-0.16


 Confirmed that constraints on `base` work normally in most circumstances.
 We still don't have a proper solution for the base-wrapping situation, but
 that's very rare now. Deferring to a later release and lowering priority
 for now.
