the Debian ghc package ships Cabal, and necessarily the version that
comes with GHC. We could introduce a separate haskell-cabal package, but
I’m also unsure about the implications, so I have been flinching from
uploading Cabal-1.18 to Debian.
I’d feel more comfortable with this boot-library version deviation if
someone who knows the interaction of GHC (the compiler), ghc (the
librarY) and Cabal better can comment on it.
