I occasionally take some time off for other projects, but jhc is alive and well.
 The C produced is quite legible and even better, portable. Everything
from the Nintendo DS to the iPhone has been a target.

I am always welcoming active developers. No better way to kick me into
jhc mode than submitting some patches. :)

0.8.1 is almost due to be put out, it will be the first to be 100%
haskell 2010 (and haskell 98) compliant and has a lot of other neat
features over 0.8.0.
