That sounds fine to me.

Other small details:

   - We should bump the cabal-install package version to be the same as the
   Cabal package version, and increment both at the same time. It's deeply
   confusing to have the two out of sync.
   - I'd like to get rid of some old named branches that no longer have any
   value, e.g. cabal-1.2. Keeping tags around for a long time makes sense,
   branches do not.
