I think it ought to be called Haskell-Platform.framework.

I do "make framework-pkg" to build the OS X installer, but it's
essentially a black box to me. We're happy to accept patches that make
this also produce a bindist, though.

Now that we have the Haskell Platform, perhaps we should stop making GHC
OS X installers, and only make plain old unix bindists.
