Comment(by dankna):

 I have submitted a patch for this with darcs send.  My patch simply
 relaxes the restriction on the name of the file given to main-is: to also
 allow known C-language extensions.  The ticket description suggested that
 -no-hs-main might be required in this situation, but that seems to no
 longer be the case.  There might still be a problem when the entry point
 is WinMain() instead of main(); see GHC ticket #2459 (at
 http://hackage.haskell.org/trac/ghc/ticket/2459 ).  I'm not really set up
 to test that case.
