cabal-install uninstall ?

The problem I see is that each compiler dependent function has its own
post-install actions: GHC has stripExe, updateLibArchive..., Hugs has
setPermissions, etc.

Maybe, while this refactorization work isn't correctly done, a function
could be done to return the list of files to update and the post-install
function to execute, which could be a Maybe type associated with a
particular file or a group of files.

What do you think?
