My opinion is that you should go with Happstack. It doesn't hold your
hand as Yesod does, and enables you to learn a bit at the same time.

But the real deal comes from the fact that Happstack is already mature,
and has pretty good documentation. The Yesod people are doing a great
job with their book, but as long as it's only half finished, it's a pain
to learn Yesod. There seems to be no api docs whatsoever.
