Hi Ross,
can you fix this on Hackage?  My suggested solution is to again just
remove the test-suite sections from the cabal file, if that is fine with

The current situation is unfortunate, as it breaks almost all installs
from Hackage with cabal-install 0.10.2 / Cabal, e.g. you can
not even upgrade cabal-install anymore:

    $ cabal --version
    cabal-install version 0.10.2
    using version of the Cabal library
    $ cabal install cabal-install
    Resolving dependencies...
    cabal: Couldn't read cabal file "HUnit/"
