As I've mentioned I'm mostly an OSX ignoramus. One thing I think I've
seen said before however is that things in /Library and ~/Library are
supposed to be app bundles or frameworks or some other special OSX
packaging thing, rather than traditional Unix-style installations.

If that's the case then I guess we would also want to do that, but I've
no idea how much work that is to support in Cabal (and if it would need
any extra package info over and above what .cabal files provide).
