[Haskell-cafe] hackage style

The problem with that particular README is that it is a text file. Nearly all the readme files these days are in markdown, which wraps. For text files, we do something very basic and render in a <pre> block, which does not wrap. 

To improve display of such readme files I see three options. A) use a smaller font only for pre blocks, so that more text fits, without rewrapping. B) allow text files to rewrap. C) force the content _only_ for such files to always be below a clear, and as such, below the entire properties table. I’m leaning towards A here at the moment. Thoughts?

readability. The right column with the package meta data causes the  
Readme text to be cut off. This make it almost impossible to read it. I
