Can you elaborate on "a significant number of Haskell programs"? Do
you expect that DDC can compile any Haskell (98?) program except some
weird corner cases, or are you aware of a particular class of Haskell
programs it currently can't compile?

(I'm asking in order to find out whether DDC would potentially be
useful for my work, not so as to question whether it should be on
haskell.org (I don't care about that :-))
