Hi Luke,

I don't think there is much differences in term of functionality, but there
is clearly lot of difference in term of design (which you might not care at
all as everything work fine for you!).
Basically haskdogs is a shell script ported to haskell, so it rely on
command line tools. OTHO codex use Cabal as a library and and deal with
hackage directly... the only external command it use is `ctags`.

If I were to integrate hasktags, I would do it as a library which would
make possible to remove completely the platform dependency (basically atm
it's only linux/macos, but then it could work on windows).
