I don't know Haskell either, but I've found the mailing list (and in
particular the author) to be responsive and helpful.  And the fact that
Haskell is a functional language, and compiles into a binary executable,
suggests to me that the finished product will be very robust.

I'm not advocating any change for change's sake. I think it's a worthwhile
option for anyone looking to deploy a new wiki.  I cringe every time I have
to use yet another different wiki markup; to me, markdown is the least
annoying of them all.

But if you're using gollum, and happy with it, then github flavoured
markdown is probably good enough.
