The network-uri-flag package
This empty package does not provide any modules; its sole purpose is to provide the network-uri Cabal flag logic below so you don't have to include that boilerplate in your .cabal file.
flag network-uri description: Get Network.URI from the network-uri package default: True library if flag(network-uri) build-depends: network-uri >= 2.6, network >= 2.6 else build-depends: network-uri < 2.6, network < 2.6
This avoids combining network-uri >= 2.6 with network < 2.6 which both export a name-clashing Network.URI module, because in network-2.6 the Network.URI module was split off from the network package into network-uri-2.6.
In other words, the logic above makes sure that the Network.URI module is provided by either network-uri or by network (in the XOR sense).
In order to benefit from this module, simply include it in your build-depends declaration alongside network and network-uri.
build-depends: network >= 2.5 && < 2.7, network-uri >= 2.5 && < 2.7, network-uri-flag == 0.1.*
NOTE: It's almost always an error to list this package if network and network-uri aren't both listed as well!
