However this does not maintain a complete module index like I think
Martijn is after.

It would be great if someone volunteered to implement that. There's a
ticket open for it:

One question is where to put a central index. This is especially true
for the case of global installations. For per-user installs it's
probably fine to use ~/.cabal/share/doc/index.html or something, but for
the case of /usr/local that's certainly not ok. Needs some thought.
