btw, http://homepages.cwi.nl/~ralf/gpce06/ can help on this way. i
think that there is also other papers that can help too

but i also agree with Brian - there is some constraints in Haskell
comparing to C++ and vice versa. while developing Streams library i
was many times bitten by these restrictions
