[Haskell-cafe] Superset of Haddock and Markdown

I spent some time today documenting a library and the experience left me
wanting a better markup language. In particular, Haddock lacks:
* markup for bold text: bold text works better than italics for emphasis
on computer monitors.
* hyperlinks with anchor texts: having the actual URL rendered inline with
text hurts readability.
Could Haddock markup be extended to also include some Markdown features?
The new features could be hidden behind a flag so old documentation doesn't
get unwanted markup (e.g. if it uses *...* to not mean bold).
P.S. This good make a good weekend hack that shouldn't be too difficult.
