This bundle is about making Darcs HEAD assume we work with
Haskell Platform 7.10.3 . We recently required GHC >= 7.10
so I think it is safe to get rid of some of the complexity in
Darcs' dependencies. Let us think in the long term, since the
next stable release of Darcs is not going to happen before 2017.

The direct consequence is many bumps in the minimal versions of
dependencies. There are nice indirect consequences: we no longer
need transformers-compat, neither the network-uri flag.

Furthermore, requiring cabal 1.22.5 enables us to remove some
workaround lines in darcs.cabal, and we can also stop using the
Template Haskell workaround in Setup.hs.

See https://www.haskell.org/platform/contents.html for the package
versions provided by Haskell Platform 7.10.3.
