[Haskell-cafe] Distributed haskell using Hadoop

I was looking around for a haskell solution for distributing a
computation across multiple machines and couldn't find anything that
looked current and alive. I found out that the Hadoop project (java
based) can interact with binary executables via stdin and stdout. So I
have set up a Hadoop cluster of 5 machines, wrapped my Haskell code to
accept data via stdin and write results to stdout and successfully
executed it on the cluster.

I would prefer a more Haskell orientated solution and welcome any
suggestions. If not maybe this will be of use to others.
