[Haskell-cafe] compiling lazy functional languages

Sorry if this is too off-topic for this list.

I'm a hobbyist programmer and I've recently become interested in lazy 
functional languages, particularly the optimization strategies available 
to them during compilation. I've been playing around with Haskell for 
about a year and it has been an excellent resource for me.

I guess my main question is this: what are the x most compelling 
directions in optimized compilation for (pure) lazy functional languages 
in recent research (where x::Nat is an unevaluated thunk in your head)
