Core questions

You may find it useful to use External Core (supported in GHC 6.10),
which allows GHC to dump its Core representation into a text file with
a well-defined format:

There is a (relatively) stand-alone library for handling Core
programs, under utils/ext-core in the GHC distribution.

If you don't find it useful, and have any suggestions as to how it
could be improved, I would be interested to know; please CC both me
and this list if so.
