I do not have plans to add it. I think it would be worth it - perhaps
worth a few % points in runtime - but I've started researching
supercompilation instead, which has more impressive effects :-)
Simon has said he is keen to use it though - it's just a big
engineering task to replumb GHC to use it, so perhaps this is a
project for an enterprising student.
That said, I've been told that UHC's core language uses the ideas from
Strict Core, and they have/had a student at Utretch (Tom Lokhorst) who
was working on implementing optimisations like arity raising and deep
unboxing for the language.
