Is anyone working on anything similar or that might be interested in such a

I am currently working on a Google Summer of Code project relating to some
of this...
The project is more or less bound to Haskell Server Pages (
enabling JavaScript code generation. The main difference compared to the
Google Web Toolkit approach
is that there are no special compiler magic added for compiling directly
into JavaScript.
Instead the compiled program, e.g. a cgi program generates the code
at runtime. However, type safety is gained via an embedded language
(HJScript) and a typed
abstract representation of JavaScript in Haskell.
