if there was an implementation of Haskell on Cell processors, it could
be "has cell".. I wonder if knowing what people are going to do with 
your name is sufficient to put students off becoming a mathematician ;-)

but on the Pascal note: is there anything in Pascal that Haskell doesn't
provide, and improves on (nested procedures, procedure parameters,
distinguishing in and out parameters, types, ..)? it has been too long 
since my Pascal days, I don't remember..

apart from the communication problem of understanding Haskell as 
Pascal: if you're talking to someone who knows Pascal, it might not be
a bad idea to position Haskell as a drastically modernized version of
Pascal, to get the discussion of real merits going?


Trac ticket #-42:
subject: when trying to bootstrap GHC on the PS3, configure 
            complains "can't find hardware"?
status -> closed (no bug)
comment: it is a _next_ generation console!
