The RC1 has just started, and I'd rather wait a little more till we're
closer to a final release...

PS: We'll also need a 'cabal-install' release, as the current
    doesn't build with GHC 7.8RC1

PS2: would it be possible to have
     picked up for 1.18 (assuming it applies cleanly)? It would make it
     easier to generate documentation tarballs for uploading to Hackage
     w/o needing to 'sed' away all 'file:///' prefixes.
