Not in Haskell, but it looks really promising (and it's driven by
version control), I give you Octopress:

It's basically jekyll + github.  Who knows, maybe you can use Hakyll
instead of jekyll.

Since you didn't ask for it, I'll include my $0.02 :)

I don't worry about my blog being written in Haskell because I don't
actually want to spend any time shaving yaks related to running my
blog.  I use blogspot.  It's not great but I pay $0/year and someone
else deals with the issues of keeping it secure, keeping it backed up,

If you find a cool solution, let us know.
