[Haskell-cafe] Issues with hsql-sqllite build; errors from the hackage download

Just noticed, by the way, that haskelldb doesn't build correctly  
because it still hasn't updated the cabal for the base split. On the  
other hand, the development repo (which is 0.11 -- 0.10 is on  
hackage) builds fine. Are the maintainers planning to get an updated  
version on hackage?
