What I meant was cabal taking things out of places it puts them. If I've
downloaded a source somewhere I wouldn't expect cabal to remove that.
For example if /my/chosen/dir/bin now contains the executables put there by
./Setup configure --prefix=/my/chosen/dir
./Setup install --user
then I would expect
to remove those executables from /my/chosen/dir/bin.
