Comment (by coeus):

 I like the hyperlinked sources, too. For this, I abuse
 cabal-install in bash scripts to download packages and their dependencies
 from hackage, because the following is still not possible:

 cabal install --hyperlink-source packagename

 I always have to unpack, configure, build, and "haddock --hyperlink-
 source" each package, just to have the sources hyperlinked. I don't know
 any other solution to this.

 Imho, it would be nice to have an option for that default behaviour in the
 config file. "documentation: True" is just not enough.
