Post-release retro-compatibility liberation, yay!

Following this mail thread [1], here is a patch that requires GHC 8.2
and Cabal 2.2. Some changes are weird (Putting the cabal version as the
first line of darcs.cabal) but they are required by the library. See
https://hackage.haskell.org/package/Cabal-  for more
information. Cabal developers say a 3.0 version is planned for mid-2018
so it does not seem too strict to me to require Cabal 2.2 instead of 2.0.

The second patch reverts a dependency changes on directory that we had
to do before the 2.14 release.

If nobody is opposed, I am going to screen this bundle tomorrow.

I support moving forward with this - I think it's relatively likely 
we'll discover issues with being on the Cabal bleeding edge as we try 
to use it in anger, but we can always roll back some or all of the 
changes as we run into problems.

I have added another bundle that rolls back the rollback of the addition
of the autogen-modules fields, to make cabal new-build work.
