+1 for most of the proposal.
My only doubt is about executables currently in $prefix/bin, which in
your scheme would end up in $prefix/$compiler/$pkgid/bin. I don't
want programs I have installed via cabal suddenly to disappear when I
uninstall an old compiler version. I might even want to uninstall the
corresponding library associated with the executable, but have the
executable continue to be available.
