[Haskell-cafe] Haskell on the JVM

LamdaVM was the only full-fledged effort to port Haskell to the JVM,  
and like most graduate school projects, the project is now dead.

I have strong interest in hosting GHC on the JVM. And I suspect it  
would be good for the Haskell community, as the JVM already runs on  
nearly every machine known to man, has a wealth of cross-platform  
libraries, and is getting improved support for dynamic and functional  
languages (method handles, tail call).
