This project idea sounds very cool to me :-) Could you please suggest
a starting point in approaching it?  I cannot view the article [0],
since I don't have an active ACM subscription.

I've seen the link [1], so, probably, I could contribute some patches
to it?

I'm not sure whether this is good, but this is not the first project
idea that grabs my attention, so, frankly, my principal goal now would
be getting the hang of it.  Had I had the time, I would have tried to
contribute to all Haskell libraries I like (sigh)
