That deadline is too short for comments (at minimum a week, generally
two weeks, is common); however, I think this is a trivial packaging
matter that can just be dealt with by someone. However, it'd be good to
consult with whoever added those lines to the .cabal file.
And hmm, I think people using old GHC are nevertheless supposed to
update their Cabal and cabal-install (if they want packages from
Hackage). But in this case, easier compatibility seems useful.
