[Haskell-cafe] a couple of cabal related questions

recently I've cabalized my program and it brought some problems.

First of all, I made use of 'import Paths_<package name>' functionality 
to get the path of installed data files. It works great, but now I can 
no longer run my program in ghci because this module is auto-generated 
by cabal. I tried to supply my own. This way ghci works, but my stub 
module gets compiled into the binary in place of auto-generated. And 
things break again. What's the best way to overcome it?

And another question. I'd like to make my program output it's version 
string. Of course, I can hardcode it into sources, but I've already 
specified one in the cabal file. Is there any way to get it back in the 
run time?
