It would be even cooler to automatically figure them out from the
hackage history.

I recently stumbled across a document system that does something like this:


New functions are green, changed ones are orange, and the functions
themselves have a version history.  You can switch versions within the
function, or globally with the version box in the upper right.  It's
pretty neat.

I don't know how it works but I imagine it uses the git history.
