Documentation is not actually being subpackaged here: the flag would just be
for whether the docs get build or not: generally no reason not to do that,
though occasionally docs building can break with certain versions of haddock

Thanks - will try to fold that into the templates.

Good question.  I see what you're saying, but since ghc libraries change ABI
with every minor version I think it is useful to document what version a
library has been built with - though I suppose one can also look at the binary
package metadata for that.  Let's think a little more about it.
