Changes since 2.3:

* Update license to GPLv3.

* New derived major mode for .hsc files.

* Removed the C-c C-r binding to reload a file.  You can still call
  inferior-haskell-reload-file (and/or bind it to your favorite key,
  including C-c C-r) or you can now use C-u C-c C-l.

* C-c C-d looks up the symbol at point in the Haddock docs.

* Haddock comments are highlighted with font-lock-doc-face if it exists.

* Use `tex' rather than `latex' for haskell-literate.

* inf-haskell.el tries to find the root of the module hierarchy to determine
  the root of a project (either by looking for a Cabal file or relying on
  the `module' declaration line).  If all works well, this will make C-c C-l
  automatically switch to the root dir, so that dependencies in other
  directories are automatically found.  If it doesn't, complain and/or set
  inferior-haskell-find-project-root to nil.

* The new command haskell-hoogle helps you query Hoogle from Emacs.
