The basic approach is already described in:

Automatic Transformation of Series Expressions into Loops
Richard Waters, TOPLAS 1991

The Anatomy of a Loop
Olin Shivers, ICFP 2005

The contribution of the HS paper is planning to be:
 1) How to extend the approach to the combinators we need for DPH
 2) How to package it nicely into a Haskell library.

I'm still working on the above...
