Yes, I said you can look at the source, but not compile it.
Hayoo's yellow "source" links get HTML generated from source--
a rendering intended for eyeballs, not compilers.
What I suggested is that the HTML include a link to the
underlying .hs file. Why should you have to go hassle with
git or some other repository, and maybe cabal too, to get 
code that's right before your eyes?
