[Haskell-cafe] Opinion about JHC

I discovered a Haskell compiler that generates very small and fast code. In fact, it beats Clean. It has the following properties:
1 --- One can cross-compile programs easily. For instance, here is how I generated code for Windows:
jhc --cross -mwin32 genetic.hs -o genetic
2 -- It seems to be quite complete.
3 -- However, it often compiles a file, but the program fails to run.
I have the following questions about it:
1 -- How active is the team who is writing the JHC compiler?
2 -- Is it complete Haskell? The author claims that it is; it compiled all programs that I wrote, but that does not mean much, because my programs are quite simple.
3 -- Why the Haskell community almost never talks about JHC?
