I don't think there are a great deal of Haskell users who _really_
need a physics engine right now. However, there seem to be a massive
number who are working with matrices. I am informed that a lot of
physics is just matrix stuff underneath (but don't know anything

Perhaps a nice direction to take this project would be to build an NDP
matrix library first, then use that library to build a physics engine
on top of it. A physics engine would certainly be very cool, and a
parallel matrix library would certainly be very much in demand.
