Well, great thanks for interesting links.

But definitely at first I need a time to try to understand what Generic
Haskell and EMGM are.

Does it stronger than Template Haskell? Could it be explained briefly and
simplistic for first impression? Could it be compared with SYB or TH?

Would it be applied to realisation of translation or to target Haskell
