We half thought about that, but a more direct goal is to be able to
convert GHC Core to Yhc Core, then we can use either GHC's front end
(via system) or Yhc's (natively). This would mean that we would be
able to compile any library with GHC then use it with Yhc. This
project will take about three days, once GHC has a non-broken Core
