In a lot of ways, jhc seems like a Haskell compiler done right. It
generates very fast and lean binaries - using C as an intermediary
language - which makes it a natural cross-compiler and indicates it
should not be too difficult to write a back-end for the CIL and the jvm.

On the other hand, it is still far away from GHC features-wise. 

So there is definitively room for people looking to contribute to a
compiler with a high potential. Wouldn't that be fun?
