I have to admit I haven't yet discovered how all the documentation fits
together. I set the "Search haskell.org" link on left on the front page
to search Google like this
for "mdo" which gives 577 results including the relevant page of the
GHC documentation at the top. But I'm not really sure it should search
everything on haskell.org. I can easily change this if anybody suggests
a better search criteria.
I looked all over the wiki for some way to warn users that the search
results might be incomplete. All the relevant bits - like the search
results messages - appeared to be locked against me changing them.
I'm happy to Google for things, but I don't think it's good to have
a misleading search box on the front page.
