How do we fix it? Clearly making it 6.8.1 compatible is a good thing,
but breaking 6.6.1 compatibility would be bad - and requiring everyone
to update their Cabal is likely to be equally painful.

If someone could write a brief tutorial (perhaps on the Wiki) of the
recommended (TM) way to go, I'll update my packages.
