To some degree, yes. A GADT will probably be recorded as though it was
a normal ADT for type matching purposes. It's similar with forall at
the moment, they are entirely dropped for type matching purposes, but
are searched.

I would have thought quite useful, for example if you are going to
hoogle something like Yampa, you'll need something which can at least
ignore the GADT's.

My larger concern was if haddock-ghc is going to replace haddock one
day, then I'll definately want --hoogle in there.
