If you're using GHC, I don't think a mod_haskell is a feasible option 
right now, since Haskell code can't be compiled to a dynamic library 
(unless you statically compile in mod_haskell into Apache, which is 
pretty unusual these days, or you're on Mac OS X which supports dynamic 
libraries, but then you're treading on pretty new ground).  You're 
probably best off with a standalone CGI program.
