[Haskell-cafe] Analog data acquisition

I would like to use a lazy, purely functional language to create an
experiement description (and execution!) language for cellular
neuroscience, i.e. electrical recordings and stimulation.
Unfortunately, this means I have to talk to a
Analog-to-Digital/Digital-to-Analog converter board, with a precision
of about 16 bit at a rate of 50 kHz. I currently have a National
Instruments M-series board, but would be happy to try another board.
I'm not looking for real-time control right now, but that might be of
interest in the future.

Has anyone looked at creating bindings to the NI-DAQmx drivers or the
open-source COMEDI project, or similar hardware? Would anyone be
interested in helping out with this driver binding?
