By all means... a good first step would be to separate out the front end
parts of Haddock into a Cabal package.  The parser is derived from the
Haskell 98 parser in Language.Haskell.Parser - it would be nice to
replace this with a (parameterised) version of the Haddock parser to
reduce duplication, but that's a fair bit of work.

I'd put the Haddock front end in Language.Haskell.Haddock, perhaps.
