Why any more so than with references to all the other external tools you
can use with Emacs?  There's no reason to have Hugs or GHCi installed,
just because the mode supports them.

I'm not sure I realized that existed, but that binding is simply wrong
according to the keybinding conventions.  (I actually use C-c l for
something else, relying on the conventions not to get it stamped on.)
The binding I used for checking is as consistent with other modes as I
could find when writing Python mode, and I copied that.
