We could certainly rename the script, but since it strives to match
the interface specified by cabal.  Perhaps I should rename it to
Setup.hs instead? Honestly, I only made it lowercase because I don't
like typing capital letters... (harder on the wrists).  Naming the
franchise script Setup.hs ought to make cabalization almost trivial,
for one definition of cabalization...
