 The results from
 cabal haddock --hyperlink-source
 are very nice, but quite frequently the haddocks are not built with this
 (all recent hackage libs iirc).

 Would there be a problem with generating the source links by default if
 and only if a HsColour can be found?

 Or should this issue instead be resolved at the haddock level?
