Ticket #418 (closed enhancement: duplicate)
'cabal check' should warn about open lower bounds

Dependencies of the form "foo > x" don't really make sense given the hackage version policy, since they exclude x but include x.y which is supposed to have a similar api, and if you want something introduced in a minor (or lesser) release you can explicitly mention that.
Also what is often intended with that notation is foo >= (x+1), causing confusion.
I propose that we allow only closed lower bounds, i.e. foo >= x.
