doing those two pieces is *amazing* and jailbreaks a lot of amazing

> effort, started with a mega-commit by Patrick Dougherty.
> A warning though: the APIs of the new packages are not mature yet,
> because not enough people use them and give feedback, because
> they are not mature yet. So expect lots of breakage, guarded by major
> version bumps. E.g., we re-export too much stuff from Cabal-syntax
> to limit the breakage of Cabal, to give users a sporting chance
> to transition to the split API before it's the only one available.
