why not just provide with 6.6.1 both old and new regex-base versions?
after all, the exact reason of splitting base was just to get more
flexibility. anyone who need old version can use it using
cabal/ghc-pkg features, one shouldn't suppose that ghc 6.6.* will
forever bundle only the same versions of packages that was shipped at
ancient 6.6.0 times
