One of the nice things about, for example, PHP is that if you look at the documentation for one of its functions, e.g.: http://www.php.net/manual/en/function.file-get-contents.php, it tells you that file_get_contents is available in PHP >= 4.3.0.
I propose that all exports in Haskell libraries should be required to have such a thing in their haddock documentation. For the current code we could either give the current versions as the date of introduction, or do some digging and put precise data in.
