LIP and the AAP project

Now that I have at least gotten something started on the Library
Infrastructure Project, I'm going to bend some of my energy toward the
build/install issues for Haskell modules.
The plan at this point, which is summarized on the project web site
is to attempt to leverage HMake's usefulness as a
non-compiler-specific build system.
Since I wrote the proposal, I've been made aware of the AAP
project. Does anyone have any experience with this? Does anyone
have a sense for how it might fit in with LIP? I know that Peter
Simons seems to think it might.
I haven't read through all of the documentation, but I suspect it
might help us out with the CPAN-style distribution stuff, and perhaps
the building stuff. One big objection I have with using it would be
that Haskell modules would depend on Python (!), but I thought I'd let
everyone know about it anyway. Seems like an interesting project, and
we could quite possibly learn something from it.
