I'd like to thank Vasili for resurrecting this project, which I thought had 
all-but-died for lack of nurture (the day job, etc.).  It's really nice to know 
that, when (I hope!) the day comes that I want to pick up my Haskell work again, 
it won't have completely been left behind by the many exciting developments in 
the Haskell platform.

When I have just a little time, I'd like to help move the code into a suitable 
open repository.

Many thanks!
