No, Cabal requires that things needed by Setup.*hs files (such as the
FilePath module) come with all compilers. That can be done by shipping
the filepath package with all compilers rather than putting the module
into the base package.

For the record, I'm also opposed to putting this into base for much the
same reasons as Bulat, as I'm sure I've discussed with Neil before.
