Hi David,

as an industrial Haskell user I cannot thank you enough for the value 
that this brings to my teams, especially when we are in the process of 
onboarding newcomers.
This is priceless.

> The Haskell Error Index (https://errors.haskell.org/) is a

> includes a unique code. This code can be looked up on the index to 
> find user-contributed explanations and examples. As the specific 
> phrasing of messages in GHC is improved over time, the codes will
