Auto-running haddock on upload strikes me as a good way to open  
hackage.haskell.org to a denial of service attack.

Additionally, I *think* haddock is run as part of the automated build  
tests, which (again) happen on a regular schedule instead of being  
triggered by uploads to avoid potential denial of service attacks.
