Dh_Haskell's configure recipe datasubdir

Hi all,

I see that Dh_Haskell's configure_recipe pases this to the configure:


If I understand things correctly, without overriding datadir, this
results in Haskell packages using paths directly under /usr/share
based on the cabal package name, which is the not the debian package
name, hence /usr/share mixes two namespaces.

Normally it might not be a problem, but for some Cabal packages with
common names like js-jquery, it means we steal or conflict on a very
generic name.

Does anyone know the rational of using CABAL_PACKAGE instead of the
actual package name (which should prevent any conflicts)?
