Append characters that immediately follow a linked name to the links name

Say we have a function:

-- | Extract all 'Item's from given 'Data'
foo :: Data -> [Item]
foo = undefined

Then we probably want a link <a href="...#t%3AItem">Items</a> in the html output of Haddock (notice the s in the link name).

MediaWiki? has a similar feature: [[Item]]s gives <a href="/wiki/Item" title="Item">Items</a>

Good idea. Should be easy to implement by fiddling with the HTML renderer for HsDoc?, in case you'd want to volunteer :-)

Something like 'Item's looked really awful with the old css, with the new "ocean" css, it looks quite ok. So I see no reason to tackle this.

I'll close this as "wont fix". If you think we still need this feature, I'm happy to implement it (with a minor modification**). Just reopen the ticket.

** I would only putting the s (or whatever follows the liked name) inside the code block, but not inside the anchor-element. This way they are rendered with the same font, but you can still differentiate between `Item`s and `Items`.
