sorry, i was only trying to make a helpful suggestion!

just to clarify: i'm not championing asciitext (or any other format) -- i only 
heard about it recently in a comment on

i checked it out and it sounded cool, so i thought it'd be a helpful pointer to 
whomever is working on new haddock -- they are of course welcome to ignore it.  
totally understand that overmuch debate is not helpful (though i'm not sure 
it's fair to call it bikeshedding, since it is a primary feature of the 
proposed project!)

best, ben
