Or they have no upper bound on the version of base in their .cabal
file, so cabal-install tries to be clever and defaults to base-3 to be
safe (from when base-4 was introduced and many packages wouldn't build
with it).

Nowadays, is there any reason why we need to consider base-3
compatibility any more?  Is it viable to just use base-4 and not
bother with extensible-exceptions as a compatibility layer?
