convert a custom test-suite to Cabal-test

Currently I am trying to convert the test suite in utility-ht to Cabal's
new Testing feature. The documentation in
mentions the packages cabal-test-hunit, cabal-test-quickcheck1, and
cabal-test-quickcheck2 but I cannot find them on Hackage.
Will I be able to write a test-suite that works both with QuickCheck-1 and
QuickCheck-2? So far I was able to write my Arbitrary instances and tests
in a way that they can be run from both QuickCheck-1 and QuickCheck-2.
Thus a single package cabal-test-quickcheck that provides a consistent
interface to both QuickCheck versions would help me.
I am unhappy about the naming PureTestable vs. ImpureTestable. As part of
a fundamental package like Cabal it further fixes the ubiquitous confusion
about purity in Haskell. I propose to rename as follows:
ImpureTestable -> IOTestable
PureTestable -> SimpleTestable
