I'm not proposing the LaTeX is used for hyperlinking the
reference  -  hence my comment about nicely integrating

Perhaps a \begin{haddock} ... \end{haddock} environment* ?

* This would only affect those using LaTeX/lhs - everyone else could haddock** as usual

** haddock = whatever markdow/up/sideways scheme you guys come up with...
