if that would work, then you could indeed fix this by a binNMU. But in
these cases, the _upstream code_ needs to be fixed, as already the
_cabal file_ specifies the upper bound of < 0.6 on test-framework. So
you can
* ask upstream to release a new version or
* see if the current code works with 0.6 without any changes besides the
cabal file (which you’d modify in a patch in debian/patches) or
* see if you can do the necessary changes to make the package in
question compile with 0.6 (again in debian/patches), and submit the
patches upstream.
