I agree. The most important thing about this change is that it allows people
to play with styling more easily. As a bonus we get a new default style that
looks more modern than the old style.

My personal preference would be for the style to have a left hand menu, like
the Python docs. It's now possible for me to play with that idea and, if the
result is convincing enough, try to convince other Haskellers that it should
be the default. If I can't convince others, I can always use a browser style
switcher to have the docs render the way I want in my own browser.
