[Haskell-cafe] Haskell *interpreter* on iPad? (Scheme and Ocaml are there)

Well, I'm not interested in a lisp interpreter written in Haskell.  Nor am
I (at the moment) interested in writing an iPad app in Haskell.

I changed the subject to clarify.

What I would like to see is A Haskell Interpreter on the iPad.  

To further emphasize, I'd like to type in (or paste in) Haskell code and
have it executed on the iPad.  To reiterate:  Something like Hugs, or ghci
on the iPad.

By the way, there are three Scheme interpreters in the iPad app store.  In
addition to the two I previously mentioned, there is iScheme.
