This is expected; pre-releases always have version numbers strictly less
than the final release they lead up to.

This is due to the upper bound on `base`. You will likely get farther if
you invoke cabal with --allow-newer=base. In general you will likely
want to use something like Herbert's head.hackage  patch-set if you
want to build larger projects with this alpha.
