Dear GHC developers,

Why do you introduce the  runghc  command for Cabal, while everyting 
is done by the `ghc' driver ?
We have                        ghc -c
                               ghc --make

Cabal is a part of GHC. So, it is natural to continue:

  ghc -configure 
  ghc -build
  ghc -install

And the user would not need to deal with a new notion of `runghc'.

With kind regards,
