Usually, I'm using technique described here 
by using `extra-source-dir` key in cabal file and splitting implementation.

This program uses some features that was introduced in last version of OS X “Yosemite” 10.10, but some of my users use previous version "Maverics " 10.9. Is there some technique that allows me to extend my cabal file and specify which *version* of os is currently in use and don't load some of modules?
