[Haskell-cafe] Info on dependencies among libs distributed with ghc?

I'm working on the packaging of Ghc for Arch Linux and the packaging
of Ghc 7.8 was in place about a week ago.  It was delivered with
`Cabal` 1.18, and already now there's a 1.20 available, which is
required by the latest version of `cabal-install` :(

Ghc 7.8 comes with quite a few other basic libraries.  Are there any
dependencies between these libraries besides the obvious one on

In other words, can I update Cabal without running into the
diamond-dependency problem?

Most software today is very much like an Egyptian pyramid with
millions of bricks piled on top of each other, with no structural
integrity, but just done by brute force and thousands of slaves.
