When we are talking about such simple helpers then you may want to check 
Mark : Highlight several words in different colors simultaneously.
I also like showmarks to highlight interesting places:
ShowMarks : Visually shows the location of marks.

Is this a correct summary?
* can load cabal components (all files of the component)
* can do type checking on buffer write
* can show type of any symbol under cursor if the file type checks
