Those (aforementioned) people should keep in mind we tried to keep the
scope of the project down to just making the new Haddock support the
features of the old Haddock (no type inference, docs for GHC
extensions, etc). Most of the bugs concerning the pre-GHC subset of
Haddock have now been fixed (although there are a few left).

Most other problems we're currently seeing is with GHC extensions,
like for instance Template Haskell.You should not blame the SoC
project so much for this (although it could have handled extensions
more gracefully).

The project was also run in a time when the GHC API was not so evolved
and had a bug or two.
