I would rather see Leksah remain using cabal files. Using cabal's files
allows for a much more natural integration into the Haskell build
environment than would otherwise be the case.

A cabal file setup wizard (especially if it focuses on importing existing
source files, which is awkward at the moment), would probably serve your use
case just as well.
