 In order to test and debug code that depends on the `ghc` package, it
 would be nice to have `Show` instances for the types it exports.

Comment (by alexbiehl):

 While 'show' would be nice for now you can use 'ppr' and 'showSDocUnsafe'
 from 'Outputable'.

Comment (by sjakobi):

 Replying to [comment:1 alexbiehl]:
 > While 'show' would be nice for now you can use 'ppr' and
 'showSDocUnsafe' from 'Outputable'.

 Thanks for the tip, Alex!

 I had come accross `showSDocUnsafe` before, but was scared off by its
 documentation:

 {{{
 -- showSDocUnsafe is unsafe, because `unsafeGlobalDynFlags` might not be
 -- initialised yet.
 }}}

 I felt like I had no reason to assume that `unsafeGlobalDynFlags` was
 initialised. The
 function might be less scary if there was a comment explaining under what
 circumstances `unsafeGlobalDynFlags` ''is'' initialised.

 For my immediate needs, I made do with a few orphan instances.
