That looks to me like something that would be amazingly cool if it was 
done successfully (and a pretty "killer feature" for using Haskell in 
general) - but it looks like a HELL of a lot of work to bring it from 
being a pipe dream to a practical reality...

OTOH, I don't build compilers for a living, so...?
