I don't see PDF and HtmlHelp backends here. Of course PDF can be
created from LaTeX but this requires doble translation and you will
need both txt2tags & LaTeX installed. I spent some time to add support
for HtmlHelp in haddock and I am using the HtmlHelp output from
DocBook. I don't want to spend more time to learn a new markup and to
make the things working with the new tools. I can't see real reasons
to switch to new formats.
