No worries.  I might never have got around to releasing it if it wasn't
for the encouragement of Manuel Chakravarty, Don Stewart, and others.
Thanks guys!

Yep, that's correct.  Compiling Haskell to .NET IL is a significantly
more adventurous project!  I wouldn't have managed to acheive a
practical result in the time I had for my thesis if I had taken that route.

Salsa's approach to type system mapping could be useful in such a
project though.
