Two (somewhat tangental) thoughts come to mind.

1. Should it not, in theory at least, be *relatively* easy to target 
Haskell at anything that has a graph reduction machine? (You target 
Erlang, somebody else has targetted JavaScript, I myself attempted to 
target Java...)

2. How come all these projects use Yhc? According to the wiki, Yhc 
doesn't even _work_ yet. What gives?
