You may not want to take this approach. I'm assuming you are generating 
haskell types from a (large) DTD. I went this way (admittedly quite a few 
years ago) for svg. In the end it was much easier to hand generate a few 
combinators to produced the svg. I don't know what your application is but it 
may worth thinking about an alternative to 700k loc.
