I think the main problem you'll face is that pexports is a windows
only tool. If cabal can be made to use pexports on windows and something
else on Unix then that should be ok.

If you expect people writing Haskell bindings in Unix to jump though
hoops to hook pexports into a windows specific build, you are heading
for disappointment :-).
