If this was reccomended practice, then I must have missed where it was
documented. In particular, the "Upgrading packages to work with recent
Cabal and GHC versions" link from haskell.org/cabal leads to
http://haskell.org/haskellwiki/Upgrading_packages, which suggests:
build-depends: base >= 3, containers
build-depends: base < 3
Unless my understanding is wrong, this will consume base-4 while
ignoring your new compatibility base-3.
Where should Haskellers be looking to find these reccomendations, if
not on the official Cabal site?
