Thanks, I have been looking for this for a while! I was thinking of
implementing it myself, but never had the time...

I would vote for:

runhaskell Setup hscolour (runs hscolour only)
runhaskell Setup haddock --hscolour (does both)

That way you can still get hscolouring, even if you don't want
haddock, and can easily get both with one command.

Thanks a lot!
