Looks good after a cursory review.

Regarding your questions:

Not sure (I don't use 'freeze' much). You can always test/look at code.

This is refers to writing custom Setup.hs scripts. Users can change
the UserHooks record they supply to Cabal.

The former uses the compiler the package was configured with, while
the latter uses the one in PATH.

Yes, if you think that your changes are ready to be merged, please
