[Haskell-cafe] GHC for .NET?

Over at
I read:

  "The GHC compiler for .NET is currently under development at
  Microsoft Research, Cambridge".

Hmm.  That location sounds familiar :-)  Does anyone know if this is
actually going to happen?  Or if there's any code anywhere, however
experimental, to try?

As a side note, the dotgnu project includes a C-to-CLR compiler,
though it has trouble passing the autoconf stuff in ghc (and I may not
have the expertise to fix it; it is crashing on the alignment tests).

I figure that if I can get portable enough C code out of ghc, and a
runtime compiled to CLR, it should be possible to compile Haskell to
.NET that way.

Anyway, it's just me off on a tangent again.
