      With pure side of the Haskell house, there is hope that the generated
code could automagically scale as more cores are added yes? It seems that it
is on the stateful monadic side of the house in an appplication that it is
the programmer responsibility to design the software so that it scales
across increasing cores? (I am assuming that things like "par" construct are
monadic). On Monday, I am starting a several month project with a company.
Alledgely some of the code will be written in Python. I would like engage
the manager in a discussion about multi-core "enabling" the code now when we
design and implement not later as an afterthought. Seems like a gnarly
subject given current "state-of-the-art" software tools.  Ideas?!

Regards, Vasili
