Hayoo gets it package database out of haddock with text hackery - try
things like data Foo = Bar {a, b :: Foo}, it's not nearly complete.
Hoogle on the other hand directly examines bits and produces an
accurate index. That's also one of the reasons Hoogle is a bit behind
Hayoo, it has to do more to get the full package information out. One
day Hoogle will match Hayoo and index all packages.
