    Allow numeric fields in tar headers that use binary format

    This is an old non-standard extension that some tar tools still use.

    Create all parent directories of extraced files

    Previously only created the immediate parent directory.
    No rely more heavily on the file security check to make
    sure we are not writing files outside of the target area.

    Ignore PAX entries when checking for tarbombs

    When checking for tarbombs, ignore PAX entry types 'g' and 'x'.
    These do not get extracted so their names do not matter.

    Fix calculation of paths in check for bindir symlink overwriting

    We were doing it wrong, but Linux realpath() C function was letting
    us get away with it. The Solaris realpath() is stricter.
    The new implementation is also simpler, relying on the fact that
    the canonicalizePath function will resolve symlinks.

    Only apply preferences to base if its version is unbounded above

    This is a backport to the cabal-install 0.6.x series. It relies
    on the VersionIntervals ADT which was added in Cabal-1.7.x, so
    that also had to be backported.

    Only report preferred new versions of cabal-install are available

    That is, use the "preferred-versions" mechanism when deciding
    whether there is a new version available. This would allow us to
    upload a new version without everyone immediately being told to
    get it and try it out.

    Make cabal upload/check print out the error messages reported by the …

    The code to do it was already there but we were checking for the
    mime type text/plain using just (==) when in fact the server reports  
      text/plain; charset="ISO-8859-1"
    so we have to parse the field a bit better (still a bit of a hack).

    Improve the parse error message for package name/deps

    Make it clear that it's the specification of the package name that
    is at fault rather than the package to which the name refers.

    Debian in their wisdom decided to build network against parsec 3.

    So checking for parsec 2 fails. We don't strictly need parsec, it's
    just a dependency of network, so remove the check.
