This is my dream too :-)

My area is data processing. Most of my programs can afford quite a long
initialisation phase, but then are required to process huge amounts of
data. I am thinking about using that initialisation phase to generate
C/C++ code from Haskell and compile it. This would allow me to move
most of the more complicated logic to Haskell. I just hate writing
parsers and the like in C++.

Perhaps there is a chance for cooperation?

BTW, I think it would be nice if we could use Template Haskell
quoting facilities for generating code in languages other than
