One thing I haven't seen anyone else comment on is the width of the new
docs. I have a large (26") monitor and use the browser full-screen (with
xmonad, so even more screen space). When I load these pages, particularly
the non-frame one, something like 50% of my screen real-estate is empty
whitespace on either side of the doc content. There is also wasted space
in the frames version, just a little less of it. I wish the docs were
using that space like the current Haddock does. Is the plan to use a
fixed width like this?

Please say no, it's a disappointing trend that you see everywhere. Like
Twitter's web interface, for instance, very narrow.
