 The hoogle package is very useful to search the standard library.
 Unfortunately, it does not search packages that you have installed which
 are not part of the stdlib.

 It would be great if every package installed always had its haddock
 generated, and from its .txt file a .hoo file was generated (e.g: hoogle
 --convert), and then all .hoo files sat in some centralized directory
 which hoogle would then use for its searches.

 This would be great documentation, and let you hoogle for anything that
 you can import.
