Have you tried Hoogle? I know you can install it locally and use it from
GHCi or Emacs. I'm not familiar with ri, but from your description I think
a local Hoogle would serve the same purpose with the added benefit of being
able to search by types.

Here's the wiki page about it: http://www.haskell.org/haskellwiki/Hoogle
