Misplacement of installed binaries

Using Cabal-1.4 and cabal-install head, installing cabal-install puts
the binary at:

"C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Application Data\cabal\bin"

That seems like a bad choice of location for installed program files
on Windows. Application Data is not for putting binaries into. It is
installing programs, and they should go in C:\Program
Files\Haskell\bin, as they did with Cabal-1.2.

Is there a reason for changing the install location on Windows?
