Thanks Yitzchak,

I'm thinking and acting on having that available in your quiver & have 
the ability to do so a couple of times in the past (stand-alone Haskell 
code as
fully fledged .NET classes/assemblies, both the dynamic and static kind.)

I didn't want to hold up the initial release to do this right now _and_ 
would really
like to get a better gauge at how important having that piece would be 
to users
looking to use Haskell in a .NET context.

There's only so much time it seems, but no shortage of interesting projects
to hack on :-)
