Is anyone using Haddock's support for frames?

Since version 2.4.0 Haddock has generated HTML output that uses frames
(index-frames.html) in addition to the normal output. We'd like to
deprecate this feature unless there is a significant amount of users.
The reason is two-fold:

  * We probably want to replace the frames with something more modern
(like a sidebar on the same page) in the future

  * We are rewriting the HTML backend and it would be nice to avoid
unnecessary work

So if you're using this feature and want to keep it, please speak up!

cc:ing cvs-ghc@ in case they have any users of the frames due to the
size of the GHC code base. (This might have been the the original
motivation for the feature).
