I don't see any problem with this, except that there will be a lot of
configure flags if we keep this up. That's typical for configure,
though. Also, of course, it adds more complexity to the source.

Uninstall is also a little funny because in order to use it you have
to have the cabal-ized source package around somewhere, and cabal
doesn't install it. That said, there's no really deep reason not to
I filed wishlist bugs for both of these against the debian package
