‎How does Yi compare to Sublime Text + Sublime Haskell plug-in? For me, that's the Haskell IDE Of choice. And it does support  concurrent tasks.

I was surprised when I found out as well. There are definitely plans to
implement it. If Haskell takes part in this year's GSOC, I hope to put
together a proposal which amongst some other things includes concurrency
support for Yi.

So yes, we definitely plan on tackling that.
