I actually thought of coding up support in the other direction: It would be nice for Leksah to support projects that needed no more than "ghc --make" to build. Several of my co-workers are learning Haskell, and having to create a .cabal file just to compile their one and two module experiments is a bit high of a bar.

I imagine that it would be nice if Leksah offered support three forms of project:
	project build with just ghc --make (or just a single file build)
	project based on a .cabal file
	project based on a collection of the above

I'd be interested to experiment with the above ideas and contribute... if I could only get Leksah to build.... (next post...)
