[Haskell-cafe] Haskell on Pocket PC?

Any ideas on how much work needs to be done for using Haskell on PPC
Windows Mobile platform?
It would be interesting to use PPC as:
1) Haskell learning tool, so small code snipets could be entered and
run directly on hand-held (REPL). How hard is it to port Hugs to PPC
for this? Do any other (then Hugs) implementations exist that are
easier to port?
2) Running on PPC Haskell applications cross-compiled on host PC. How
much work must be done for GHC to support this?

3) There are several ways both for porting Haskell to PPC as well as
cross-compiling Haskell code. Which one makes more sense to implement
and will take less effort:
a) Porting/compiling to VM byte code (Java, Parrot)?
b) Porting/compiling to .NET CLR?
c) Porting/compiling source code

4) And finally, do any projects already exist in this area?

It would be great to get ideas how such port can be done in reasonable
amount of time, in other words to find the most easy way to start with
some Haskell implementation on PPC.
Thanks for any info!
