It may not be long before most of the computing world has gone mobile.  CNET
suggests the major players will be Qualcomm and Intel, where QC is more
power-efficient, but Intel conveniently targets x86.

Qualcomm vs Intel: You

I'm a software engineer at Qualcomm with a desire to code more Haskell at
work.  This desire will only get stronger in coming years as multithreaded
apps on mobile devices get more popular, and ways to write them reliably in
traditional languages continue not to exist.

Would anybody be interested in a "GHC on ARM Hackathon" in San Diego this

When is 6.10 estimated to come out?  Do we really need to wait for it?

Do you have a plan for how to do this?  Maybe we can invite a Simon to teach
us the innards of the RTS and help guide us?
