I still think we shouldn't change the CompilerId type. You gave this
motivation for changing it in another thread:

> It's not so much an implementation detail of GHCJS itself, but more a side effect of many people using impl(ghc) flags in their packages to check whether the compiler supports some particular feature. We could leave it out, but then many packages would have to be updated to duplicate the impl check (or replace it)

I think we should definitely fix the packages, not put a hack in Cabal.
