[Haskell-cafe] Haskell compilers targeting VMs

A more subtle issue is that there's some sort of memory leak that arises
when you can't instruct the GC to follow projection functions of data
types. I believe the GHC heap representation has a built-in notion of these
forwarding closures and the GC follows them when possible, but most VM GCs
are just black boxes. It might still be possible to create an artificial
field in a representation of your closure that the GC can follow, but it
could be tricky.
