Right, thanks for catching this.

I wrote a patch for cabal-install (change set, pull request) that depends on this. Is it still safe to test for >= 1.1.1?

I think so, has not and will not be released, so >=1.1.1 is equivalent to >=1.2.

Since might be released in the future, even though it's unlikely, so code that depends on something added in 1.2 should depend on >=1.2.
