Fantastic accomplishment! I can only repeat dons' comment
- this could be game-changing.

Some obvious questions that come to mind:

We see that it is already possible to expose a Haskell function
to .NET as a callback. That's exciting! Can we go to the next step
and register it as part of an assembly?

Is it be possible for a running .NET app to fire
up the GHC runtime and call into compiled Haskell?

Is it possible at all for a .NET function not to have any side effects?
If so, is there any way to label it as such and then call it
from Haskell outside of the IO monad?
