Having a central place for documentation is rather nice, I use it as a
reference all the time. If we don't want to put haddock documentation of
the standard H98 libs here could we at least keep them and put a http
link to where they are documented.

That way if someone searches for a function name or some other part of
the hierarchical libraries documentation makes reference to a standard
function then the standard function will at least come up and at the top
of the page it could have a link to where the function is documented.

Personally I think it'd be nice to have haddock documentation for the
H98 standard libs too, just as a reference. But I understand that would
be rather a lot of work for someone.
