Bug#507912: haskell-devscripts: Overly-tight deps in dh_haskell_depends

Package: haskell-devscripts
Version: 0.6.14
Severity: normal

I am starting on the process of getting all my packages to use
dh_haskell_depends.  Unfortunately, I noticed some oddities:

I just built hslogger.  Its cabal file has Version: 1.0.6.  The
debian/changelog version is  I am upstream for hslogger, so
it is a debian-native package.

Then I went to build MissingH.  It too is using dh_haskell_depends.
Amongst the dependencies for libghc6-missingh-dev, I see:

  libghc6-hslogger-dev (>=, libghc6-hslogger-dev (<<

which is functionally the same as:

  libghc6-hslogger-dev (=

I am not sure what you meant to use; perhaps:

  libghc6-hslogger-dev (>=, libghc6-hslogger-dev (<< 1.0.6.+)

In other words, the upper bound should be based on the cabal version,
not the Debian version.

CCing to debian-haskell for feedback there.
