If there's a good way in 8.x (with new Cabal and Shake) to avoid
bundling, while using Shake for ghc --make, then I'm all for it. My
concern is that it has to be as simple as it's currently to install
ghc on a random Linux distro, in order for someone to use a Shakefile.
I want more Shakefile users :).
