Comment(by duncan):

 Note that one use case is when exes have data files they need to find. In
 this case, it's necessary to set the `pkgname_datadir` env var so that the
 program can find the data files in the build tree.

 That said, it may be preferable to generate shell scripts in
 `./dist/inplace/bin` or something like that, rather than providing a
 `cabal run` command.
