[Haskell-cafe] Hackage being too strict?

When I went to make my upload of MissingH 1.0.1, Hackage rejected it,
Instead of 'ghc-options: -XPatternSignatures' use 'extensions: PatternSignatures'
It hadn't rejected MissingH 1.0.0, even though it had the same thing.
Now, my .cabal file has this:
-- Hack because ghc-6.6 and the Cabal the comes with ghc-6.8.1
-- does not understand the PatternSignatures extension.
-- The Cabal that comes with ghc-6.8.2 does understand it, so
-- this hack can be dropped if we require Cabal-Version: >=1.2.3
If impl(ghc >= 6.8)
which was contributed by Duncan Coutts.
It seems arbitrary that Hackage would suddenly reject this valid
