Update the cabal file and send it to the upstream author, or ask him
to do it and make a new release.

There's no central database of cabal packges YET, but once there is,
you will probably still want to send fixes like this to the upstream
authors so they can make a release and upload it to Hackage.  I don't
think we plan to take patch management out of the hands of the authors
of the tools!
