This is quite cool. As GHC is gains the ability to use multiple
processors, so grows my interest in data parallelism with Haskell.

I haven't yet looked at the DFH thesis, but I am interested in data parallelism
projects in general. I was only aware of the parallel arrays in the the Nepal
project before DFH. 

Does anyone know of other data parallel projects that could be ported to GHC
without much trouble?
