The HP build expects that the html docs for the ghc-bundled packages will be in
heirarchical directories, based on the package name (e.g., GHC.Magic docs in
libraries/ghc-prim- which is how it has been for many
ghc releases.  In 7.10.1, I thought it was an error but it seems the docs reflect this new, flat way (e.g,. GHC.Magic docs in

Just want to make sure this is what is expected, and then change the HP
build code accordingly.

Follow up question: should the HP-bundled docs do the same thing?  Is the

flat model the way to go for all the docs?  Won't this cause collisions for

updated packages?
