I personally depend on tags because the source code only tells what is really going on.
So it would be incredible useful to not only get information using ghci after loading libs but also beeing able to jump to all functions you might be using anywhere (The only solution providing this in all cases is uning tags, right? Because cpp defines can introduce new functions.. To be able to jump to the code source must be installed along with libs (the way you can optionally install haddock docs)
setup configure --with-tags --install-source (or something like that)
setup build && setup install
do this for each dependency given in the .cabal file
(VIM:) let tags+=system('ghc-pkg --query-tagfile-location haskell98-184.108.40.206')
If you do not think this is useful (mandatory?)
how do you lookup code? (Yes I know hoogle :)
perhaps using Eclipse or Visual Studio?
I'd like to start implementing this somehow the next weeks.
So don't hesitate and start discussing

Most of the discussion will take place on haskell-cafe (mailinglist).
