Re: darcs' debian/control ghc6 -> ghc pisses off pbuilder

Hi Trent.

Yes, you're right, this change was done because of the transition to ghc
7.0.1.  I believe you may either wait for ghc 7.0.1 to arrive unstable, or
change it back to ghc6 to work with the current unstable ghc, that's not a bad
thing from my perspective (maybe it was a bad thing to change the packages
before ghc 7.0.1 arrive in unstable, sorry for that).
