Excellent stuff!  

I didn't follow all the details of your message, but I notice that the
source code link doesn't move to the defn, presumably because there's no
anchor in the source file.  I guess that would require munging the
source files to add the anchors?  Unless one can link to "Foo.hs line
424", somehow.  

Suppose I follow the Comments link from (say) withSvgFromFile, and add
some comments.  Will they automatically get the right anchor?  Because
all the comments for SVG (rightly) end up in a single file, don't they?

This looks great.  (Don't forget the documentation for Haddock itself.
Documenting the feature makes it much more likely that people will use
