Sure! All you need is haddock-ghc (haddock-0.8 is fine too, but
there's an annoying bug with the X newtype deriving -in XMonad.Core -
which requires a very small patch). IIRC XMC docs should be generated
without problem.

You can get haddock-ghc from:

That's it: Setup.lhs haddock should be working fine... 

... almost. There seems to be an issue with that darcs version and the
option --hyperlink-source, which means: no links to the source code
are possible (and so no hscolour). Haddock-0.8 works fine in that

Hope this helps,
