#130: Better handling of links to cross-package documentation

 Version:  2.6.0        |    Keywords:       
 Currently, when linking to something that is exported by multiple
 packages, how do we choose which package to link to? The answer is that
 this is determined by the order of the --read-interface flags passed to
 Haddock. And it works this way mostly by accident.

 I think it would be better to automatically try to find the "best" package
 to link to, just like we do for modules. And I think we should follow a
 similar rule to the one we use for modules and try to choose the package
 that is closest (or equal) to the original package. There are of course
 some more details that we need to sort out.
