I think it's a good idea.  It would be nice to have a single Cabal
package for all the differences between 6.2 and 6.4, including HUnit,
Data.Queue, and others.  It would certainly be useful to me, since I
still use 6.2 for some stuff, but I don't know how many ppl are like

Of course, it would be better to have multiple Cabal packages, but
Cabal doesn't implement inter-dependent packages in one .cabal file
yet.  I hope to soon!
