as i seen in Ruby documentation tool, the code is just html-ized with
syntax colourimng and labels (#concat, #map and so on) added before
each function definition. if path to this html-ized sources will be
standard, then it can be used not only in this haddock, but for
example in links from wiki, in some irc-related tools, in online
Hugs/ghci help systems and so on
