* Relax QA check on test-suite sections to require only Cabal 1.8
Only Cabal-1.10 and later can use test suites. Versions of Cabal prior
to 1.8 actually barf on test-suite sections, while Cabal-1.8 will
ignore these sections with a warning. Previously the QA check enforced
that packages with test-suite section specify 'cabal-version: >= 1.10'
but strictly speaking we only need to require 'cabal-version: >= 1.8'.
This relaxation allows people to write packages using test suites such
that people using Cabal-1.8 will be able to build and install the
package, just not run the test suite. Clear as mud?
