>From the proposal:

The information would be held in a file, such as
/etc/haskell/packages.conf[1] and ~/.haskell/packages.conf.

[1] Is there any Unix system where etc is the wrong place for something
like this?

Yes, on some BSD systems (I think it was FreeBSD I was told about) I've
heard that for software installed in /usr/local/bin, the config stuff
should be in /usr/local/etc.
