That's interesting. I have experience with SIMD (more exactly, SSE)
itself from Parallel Programming course I had last year (which
included writing SSE implementations of common stuff like DFT). As for
GHC hacking, no, but learning in this would be a really interesting
goal for me. Perhaps a GHC-related assignment from possible mentor
could be a prerequisite for any project proposal from my side, to see
how quickly I can dive into certain details of GHC implementation.
