On a related note, what about also moving some (maybe all) of the nice
Distribution.Version related functions from the Cabal package to
Data.Version? I am sure other libraries would also be interested in
using this functionality without having to include Cabal as a whole.
One example is the Ghc runtime itself: this could be one small step in
removing dependencies from Ghc to Cabal.
