 It's not just build-type Simple, the `Configure` and `Make` build types
 are also prescribed, though perhaps the latter should not be.

 For build-type Simple we'd require that the `Setup.hs` contain exactly:
 import Distribution.Simple
 main = defaultMain

 Though to not annoy people perhaps we'd have to allow `Setup.lhs`. Though
 people might still get annoyed that they are not allowed `#!` lines or
 comments or whatever. Generally there is a great risk of annoying people.
