Comment(by guest):

 To be clear, the process that generates Haddock documentation already
 generates and uploads documentation for each package. I'm only suggesting
 the files already on the server should be put in a unified tarball.

 How would a client avoid the need to download all hoogle input files? How
 would it figure out which ones have been modified? If there was a query to
 build a file from a particular date or later that would work, but it seems
 more effort than just providing everything.
