I would also love to have something along these lines, and would be  
happy to mentor such a project.

On a related note, I have some code sitting around that converts  
Language.C ASTs into a variant of Guarded Commands, and I expect I'll  
release that at some point. For the moment, it's a little too  
intimately tied to the program it's part of, though.
