runhaskell rather than runghc

Dear GHC and Cabal developers and users,

I suggest to use  `runhaskell'  rather than  `runghc'.
Because it looks to have more sense, and also for political correctness.
Cabal is a tool for `making' various Haskell implementations. 
In 2015, we may have implementations  ghc, Hugs, hbc, foo_1, ..., foo_n.
Does Cabal need to provide  runghc, runhugs, runhbc ... runfoo_n ?

Do I mistake?
