[Haskell] Haskell XML

I am looking at trying to produce XML with
Haskell and it appears there are at least two
dominant options: HaXML and WASH.

I read some of the Peter Thiemann paper on the
reason he chose a different architecture from
HaXML but don't feel like I am in a position to
judge the merits (and given the age of the paper)
am not sure those issues weren't addressed in a
subsequent version of HaXML.

In reading the HaXML documentation, it appears to
rely on DRIFT for some of its functionality.  But
I also undersand that DRIFT is being phased out in
favor of TemplateHaskell.

Is there a consensus on how to produce XML (from
Haskell types) if one is starting a project today?
