 Section 6.2 of the manual, under “How do I find out a function's
 strictness?”, talks about using GHC to show strictness in the interface

 It says to look for {{{__S <string>}}}. Should that be {{{Strictness:
 <string>}}}. I don't see the former anywhere in the GHC's formatting of
 the interface file, but I do see the latter. I looked through the history
 of ghc/compiler/iface/IfaceSyn.lhs, and it appears to have been the latter
 for at least several years.
