I realise it's similar. I don't they fulfill quite the same aim
though. Hoogle might give me two dozen results when I roughly know the
name of a function, but this isn't what I want. I know the exact name
of a function and want its documentation. Perhaps there's not enough
distinction there, but Hoogle isn't convenient enough at the moment
for general documentation usage.

The main reason this is hard at the moment, incidentally, is that the
package name (which you can't guess from just the name of the
function) is encoded into the Haddock docs URL.
