I'm not sure I would like this.  I guess I'm one of (the apparently
very few?) who are using LaTeX lhs style (using \begin/\end{code}).
Would a Haddock replacement give me the same kind of functionality in
producing a nice printable copy?  I definitely have grown attached to
having math, footnotes, page headings, sections, and so on.


=B9) As Exchange doesn't leave useful thread information, I'm not quite
sure who.  Simon and others, if you must use Exchange, could you take
care to leave an attribution, prefereably including the message-id?
