Ah, I didn’t know that ghc-doc already provides these. We should really
do that in the other packages as well.

The gzipping could be avoided (it is done by dh_compress, an easy
solution would be to pass -Xtxt to it).

Alternative hoogle could be patched to read .gz files as well. After all
the savings are considerable. If you do that, please submit the patch

The package itself has a size of 5.6MB, so the increase is acceptable.

I’m fine with the patch, thanks for the suggestion! But I’m on holiday
right now, so I’ll leave it to anyone else to deal with it.
