So take another look at these example pages:

For the per-entry links, to conserve space I've just said [Comments]
rather than [User Comments] and used a smaller font. These cosmetic
things are easy to change if anyone complains.

I've sent the haddock patches that implement this stuff to Simon Marlow,
so if people are generally favourable of this iteration of the patch
perhaps he'd like to apply it. :-) I hope I've done the changes in such
a way that it should be straightforward to add source code links too
if/when haddock is taught how to find the original source file for each

So, opinions?
