have you tried Happstack? It doesn't need Template Haskell, or a long list of pragmas, and it doesn't care what template or database engine you use.
It's main disadvantage is that it's not WAI, which seems to be ideologically superior; I've heard (or imagined) that there were some plans to make it WAI.

So I started work on Wheb with the goal that out of the box I could start a project quickly, without Template Haskell and without the dreaded long list of Language Pragma's at the top. I was inspired by the simplicity of the Scotty project which showed how easy a Haskell server could be to write.
