I dunno, John uses noweb to good effect. Things like import statements along
with the function definition are pretty nice and not achievable with
Literate Haskell.

You don't really need to know a lot of LaTex to  use noweb. I'm no LaTex
expert and I found the source easy to read.

Unfortunately literate programming doesn't really have the tool support yet.
I use emacs for Haskell development and loading Haskell code in to the REPL
will be an issue if you're editing a noweb file. Currently this is the only
thing keeping me from starting a large (> 2000 LOC) literate project
