Give me a way to get to the .NET libraries and the world is my oyster ...
Based on my experience using .NET from Ruby (via the RubyCLR library by John
Lam), having access to the .NET libraries allows you to get a lot of useful
work done. Ruby, of course, is extremely flexible  so working with .NET from
it feels very natural, and John did a lot of work to make it that way. It's
like he built an embedded DSL for interacting with .NET. I imagine the same
could be done in Haskell, though it might involve some sort of code
generation technique.


p.s. Mr. Lam is now working at Microsoft, FYI ...
