OK, that seems to be fine now.

If you build the libraries in ghc-6.8.2 (with the added OPTIONS_HADDOCK
pragmas) with haddock-2.1, Data-Array.html is almost empty.  The
old Haddock had problems with re-exports from another package:

* re-exported functions/types/classes were just shown as hyperlinked
  names without docs (the docs aren't stored in the interface file)
* re-exported modules weren't shown at all (no reason that I can think of).

However the new haddock doesn't even show the re-exported names.
