The best answer to that is "some". I intentionally excluded OpenGL and
other graphics ones because they have a large interface and yet are
not used by most people using Haskell.

I have recently patched Haddock so it will directly generate Hoogle
information, and am in the process of modifying  hoogle so that you
can pick which libraries or applications to search. Hopefully once
this is all done, the standard web hoogle interface will allow
searching OpenGL libraries, if the user selects that as an option -
and also allow searching other libaries/applications such as
GHC/Yhc/Darcs/Gtk2Hs as selected by the user.

Surprisingly, a large proportion of GHC gives errors after being run
over with Haddock, particularly the type directory - if someone fixed
this it would be handy :)
