It is great to see an example page: I have tried to use hmatrix in the
past for what should have been simple matrix/vector
multiplication/addition but quickly became frustrated unable to figure
out how to use it so I ended up writing my own (only needed few
operations to try something out).

I suggest that you put the link to that page in the description of the
package so it shows on Hackage, on this[1] page.

Secondly, I note that some modules (not all) such as
Numeric.Container[2] give the missing documentation page when clicked
on. Is this intentional? If I click back to something like version
0.14.x and click on Numeric.Container, I get documentation as I would
