I didn't mean to ignore your earlier mail -- I felt John's was
easier to comment on. As some people remarked in the other
thread, it's maybe not so unreasonable that the best way to
When I said that earlier work on Haskell/JS was not directly
relevant to my interests, it was not my intention to suggest
it was all silly stuff. I'm really just trying to get some
perspective on how to go about this sort of thing; it's
desirable to me to be able stuff Haskell libs into
