I'd probably be willing to have a crack given people to report back to (so 
someone else can comment on whether the docs're any good) and a clear 
process to follow. How much I'd actually get done's another matter of 
course, and is also likely to depend on who's willing to talk about docs 
on IRC! I'm thinking we probably need a #haskell-docs for coordination, 
there's too much traffic to do it in #haskell itself these days.
