[Haddock] display of unpacked constructors

It seems as if "!!" is used to denote constructors that are marked with an 
UNPACK pragma:


While this looks nice, it seems like a potential source of confusion for 
people reading the documentation. Someone on #haskell was asking about 
what it meant today and it took a while to track down what was going on.

I'd suggest that haddock should stay faithful to the source syntax even if 
the results are uglier.
