OK, how about the attached approach, where haddock options are
prefixed with "haddock-"?

To address Ross's points, I also added a variable-substituted
"haddock" command flag that allows us to pass the --use-contents flag
to the haddock invocation.

My changes to the documentation build client that make use of these
changes will land in the hackage-server repo when I get access to my account again and I can exercise my commit bit :-)
