No, they are just searching for "where" on its own. I'm not entirely
sure why - if a new user who actually did it would let me know, I'd be
very interested. Originally, Hoogle did not search for keywords - as a
result of real users actually searching for them it got modified to
include them. Because they are a new addition, they got tacked on
lightly, which is why keywords actually have a module in Hoogle :-)
