In truth, nested data parallelism has taken longer than we'd hoped to be ready for abuse :-).   We have not lost enthusiasm though -- Manual, Roman, Gabi, Ben, and I talk on the phone each week about it.  I think we'll have something usable by the end of the summer.

Meanwhile, as Duncan mentioned, the regular, shape-polymorphic data-parallel Repa library (described in our ICFP submission) is on Hackage, so you can certainly try that!
