Should HEAD of Cabal be depending on the new library world order?

Hi, all -
I just pulled a backlog of changes from the HEAD of the Cabal repo, and
now I can no longer build Cabal with ghc 6.6.1. This makes working with
it while running GHC 6.6.1 a bit awkward, so my poor cabal-rpm tool is
stuck in a limbo where I can't easily build it except against a manually
hacked copy of Cabal.
Is there any chance that we could bless some revision of Cabal that will
compile with GHC 6.6.1, give it a name, and then go back and resplit
things in preparation for future greatness?
If people see some value in this, I can do the necessary legwork.
