Haddock's DocBook output support needs a lot of work - I originally
started on the DocBook output before switching to HTML quite early on.
The intention was always to have a form of printable output too, and
indeed Haddock is internally structured in such a way that adding
different output formats shouldn't be too hard.

I think having a means for producing man pages would be a big win.
Patches gratefully accepted, as always!
