Looks good.

What was the reason for reordering the options in Amend and Record?

As an aside the style of using `withStdOpts` infix confused me for a bit
because I thought it was just some kind of simple combining operation,
not something that also added the standard options.

Looks good.

This will be something of a pain even for local development, as it'll
get rebuilt whenever the local cabal config changes. So we should figure
out some long-term solution fairly quickly.
