All right. Then I'll instead try to modify cabal2arch to build docs as well.
The one thing that I _really_ want input on is the location of the docs
- GHC ships with docs located in /usr/share/doc/ghc/libraries/
- In that directory there's also a script (gen_contents_index) that will
rebuild the index of all haddock docs located in subdirectories (it searches
So, is that location an acceptable location for docs of other haskell
