Using Atom, I'd really find it useful to be able to navigate to the function definition with a key combination. Maybe it exists already? I suppose in emacs that is standard?

It doesn't give you the full definition, but if you send the command

:i stut

GHCi will tell you the type signature of stut and where it's defined:

stut ::
  Integer -> Double -> Rational -> ParamPattern -> ParamPattern
    -- Defined at Sound/Tidal/Dirt.hs:297:1

ok, that is already a step forward. It would be really nice to be able to navigate the system a bit, in particular because delegation is the core of it all …
