Oh, indeed. Starting with the aggregated package index is a difficult
direction.
You might instead want to look up those core packages on Hackage,
and read their overview separately:

I'd welcome input on how to best present all this -- the Haskell Platform gives
us a chance to package up the docs in a better format for consumption.
