GHC plugin without registering the plugin

Hi all,

I'm messing about with writing a GHC plugin and looking at the
documentation here:

which states:

    Plugins can be specified on the command line with the option
    -fplugin=module where module is a module in a registered package
    that exports a plugin.

Is there anyway I can have a plugin in my local source tree rather than
being installed and registered? Not having to cabal install it would make 
development and debugging somewhat easier.
