My apologies for the lack of documentation for some of these libraries, =
and the generally poor state of the doumentation for hslibs.  Some of =
the libraries come from external sources, and in some cases the authors =
didn't provide documentation, or provided it in a form that we couldn't =
use directly.

For the next release of GHC, I'm hoping we can do a much better job, =
though not just by writing more documentation but by generating more of =
it automatically from the source code.  That's the plan; we don't have =
anything concrete yet.
