One capability I would love to see as a SoC project is the ability to
generate javascript (a small subset) as an additional output target from
ghc. Something like this was already done with yhc
here<http://www.haskell.org/haskellwiki/Yhc/Javascript>but if it could
be ported to GHC and cabalized, this would really be a boon
to the web dev community; javascript is quickly becoming one of the most
predominant languages used for GUI creation (mainly via the web).
