I for one would welcome the ability to compile Haskell programs into
Java bytecode.  One issue I have right now is the ability to get my
code into the hands of a wide audience, since the Haskell toolchain is
not widely installed by default.  That and I tend to use a ton of
Haskell modules, and there isn't a "just install all the deps" in ghc
yet ;-)
