Incorrect ordering of versions #1181

Typing cabal install bytestring installs bytestring- instead of the latest bytestring- And in general it treats the older version as an upgrade even when the version is installed forcefully with cabal install bytestring-


This is because the bytestring package has a global "preferred version" set as < 0.10.2. Presumably bytestring-0.10.2 is experimental, or does not work well with a large number of packages, though I do not know the actual reason.
