When last speaking to Duncan he gave me the impression that Setup.hs
can only depend on base. If this is not the case, and we have a
procedure for "making this a library that comes with absolutely every
compiler", then I'm happy to create it as a filepath library,

* There are no circumstances under which import Data.List will work,
but import System.FilePath will not

i.e. on parity with the base libraries. Does such a place/package exist?
