    Cabal-version-dependent Setup.hs?-)
One can hack something up without Cabal support (have a simple
Setup.hs that checks the Cabal version and runs one of the actual 
Cabal-version-specific Setup-<version>.hs that do the work)- see
the comments on that ticket. But wouldn't it be nice if Cabal would
start supporting that directly, to sort this once and for all?-)

Should also help with the other issues,
