For the extralibs, those version numbers denote the versions bundled
with GHC 6.6.  Later versions will have different numbers.
(And maybe the directory name could change; "unstable" sounds a bit
unsettling for non-Debian users.)

The old cabal-put is no longer in use -- now there's just a script of
the same name on hackage.haskell.org, which you have to be in group
hackage to use.  Isaac would presumably be happy to add you.

There's no upload tool yet, for lack of someone to write it, but I hope
the new version will be just a password-protected CGI file upload.
That would be less secure than a public key setup, but would avoid
needing special software on the client side.
