Thanks for bringing some sanity back. I notice very few people have
bothered to comment on the wiki page Neil has setup. Incase anyone
has fogotten - this was originally about what packages hoogle should
search and which options should be available (and which should be
default) for returning platform specific results.
The suggestion of platform specific flags, which I now support, seems
to be dominante. The only alternate I recall is showing all results
catagorized by platform (with 'portable' being on top) - perhaps that
could be displayed if there are zero results that are portable.
Default packages searched:
I've yet to hear anyone say we should search anything less than the
Haskell Platform by default. I also don't think anyone has spoke ill
of a "+hackage" flag.
