If haddock fails, as it does with her-lexer-0.1:

$ cabal haddock --hyperlink-source
Running Haddock for her-lexer-0.1...
Running hscolour for her-lexer-0.1...
Preprocessing library her-lexer-0.1...
Warning: The documentation for the following packages are not installed. No
links will be generated to these packages: rts-1.0, mtl-2.1.2, split-,
Preprocessing library her-lexer-0.1...
Haddock coverage:
0% ( 0 / 14) in 'Language.Haskell.Her.Parsley'
0% ( 0 / 57) in 'Language.Haskell.Her.HaLay'

parse error on input `-- | When we get the tokss from her-parser's ready, they're a bit cluttered. I'm not sure what Dr. McBride had in mind when he made that mess. But this doesn't mater, from this clutter we can create a list of lines which is aware of haskell's brackets. If a multi-line clause is inside brackets, then we keep the whole section in the same "line".'
$ echo $?

then the doc builder will still upload something. Actually, this could be useful, as it includes the highlighted sources (ideally we would make that available no matter what; that would also solve #1024. But currently there are no links to the sources if there's no docs), but it means that the package page thinks that docs are available, so http://new-hackage.haskell.org/package/her-lexer gets broken links to http://new-hackage.haskell.org/package/her-lexer-0.1/doc/Language-Haskell-Her-HaLay.html etc.

This isn't a Cabal issue.
