By the way, I just failed building the documentation. This is all wrong :|.

    Resolving dependencies...
    Build profile: -w ghc-8.8.3 -O1
    In order, the following will be built (use -v for more details):
     - matrices-0.5.0 (lib) (requires build)
     - storable-complex- (lib:storable-complex) (requires build)
     - hmatrix- (lib) (requires build)
     - elynx-tools-0.2.2 (lib) (first run)
    Starting     storable-complex- (all, legacy fallback)
