I pulled the new 00-index.tar from hackage an hour ago with cabal 
update, breaking cabal install.

cabal: Couldn't read cabal file "warp/1.3.3/warp.cabal"
cabal: Couldn't read cabal file "warp/"

Fix is

$ tar -f 00-index.tar --delete warp/1.3.3
$ tar -f 00-index.tar --delete warp/

My system:

$ cabal --version
cabal-install version 0.10.2
using version of the Cabal library
$ ghc --version
The Glorious Glasgow Haskell Compilation System, version 7.0.1

The cabal files for warp/1.3.3... need a fix, or be removed from hackage.
