I will be working on a GSOC project that will allow GHC to output a new
.hie file to be written next to .hi files. It will contain information
about the typechecked Haskell AST, allowing tooling(like haddocks
--hyperlinked-source and haskell-ide-engine) to work without having to
parse, rename and typecheck files all over again.

I have made a GHC wiki page containing more details here:


Looking forward to any comments and suggestions.
