In addition to what Mateusz already said, I want to briefly summarize my
justification for using Attoparsec:

 * Attoparsec's backtracking behavior is much easier to work with than

 * There is no such thing as a parse error in Markdown, and I think we
   should try to make this true for Haddock markup, too
