Description Jens Petersen 2009-07-05 09:32:21 UTC
Description of problem:
After installing cabal programs, it is annoying that they are not in PATH
and one has to type the fully-qualified or relative path
explicitly: eg ~/.cabal/bin/progname 

I think we can append ~/.cabal/bin to user's PATH if it exists.
