[Haskell-cafe] JavaScript (SpiderMonkey, V8, etc) embedded in GHC?

I've looked around with no success… this surprises me actually. Has anyone embedded SpiderMonkey, V8, or any other relatively decent JavaScript interpreters in GHC (using the FFI)?

I did find http://justinethier.github.com/husk-scheme/ which is a scheme R5RS implementation (I could make this work). There's also some work done embedding Lua. I also found a number of packages that compile javascript to Haskell, or the other way around, but I don't need that kind of thing.

All I really need is to allow users to write some JavaScript that accepts a single JSON 'file/string' from my Haskell program and produces another JSON 'file/string' that my Haskell program will accept.
