      Changes to the Ix class from the revised Haskell 98 report:
      
        - Ord is no longer a superclass of Ix.
      
        - rangeSize is now a class member, as there are cases when
          it is useful to be able to override it.  As a result, GHC's
          performance-improving "unsafeRangeSize" function also has to be
          a class method just in case the programmer has overriden
          rangeSize.  Of course, unsafeRangeSize isn't visible when just
          importing Ix.
      
        - Added unsafeRangeSize bindings to all our standard Ix instances.
      
        - Improved the Ix instances for Int{8,16,32,64} and
          Word{8,16,32,64} by defining unsafeIndex instead of index, and
          providing a definition of unsafeRangeSize.
      
      I hope I haven't mucked anything up :) The array tests all pass
      successfully, except for arr016 which depended on Ord being a
      superclass of Ix.  I'll commit changes to this test shortly.

      Correct typos and minor errors.
      Reorganized most of the sections, and the interface subsection appears first in each section.
      Made a small change to Figure 1, the overall architecture of the storage manager.
      The description on the configuration of the nursery is now correct.
      Added a short section on the state of the heap allocator.

      Don't say that GHC doesn't do fixity resolution on the left hand side
      of a binding before deciding which symbol is the function symbol.
      This has been fixed.

      Rephrased a few paragraphs.
      Added a paragraph on the interface to retainerSet.
      Added 'To do' paragraphs, which may be useful for maintenance.

      Note that support for generics is currently broken.

      More instance-gate fiddling.  This must be one of the most
      tiremsome bits of the entire compiler, and I appear to be
      incapable of modifying it without getting it wrong at least
      once.
      
      Still, this commit does tidy things up a bit.
      
      * The type renamers (rnHsType, etc) have moved from RnSource
        into a new module RnTypes.
      
      * This breaks a couple of loops, and lets us nuke RnSource.hi-boot.
        Hurrah!
