Thank you Tomasz! I think eventually will come sooner than you  
think :-).

On my TODO list for the next few weeks:

1) Set up a Haskell vs. Erlang heavily-multithreaded serialization  
2) Work Simon M. to make sure Haskell is on par and try to hack GHC  
to add whatever is needed
3) Add profiling support for STM to GHC (including retainer profiling)
4) Adapt the Zipper FileServer OS to #1. See if single-threading with  
delimited continuations is better than multi-threading with unbound  
5) If #4 is a yes then investigate why

And of course I will blog about the whole thing as I go along.

	Thanks, Joel
