[Haskell-cafe] Haskell on JVM (using LLVM backend)

Hello! I was recently discussing with some frients possibilities of running
Haskell programs on JVM.
I belive such possibility could be a breakdown for the popularity of
Haskell and could be very interesting for new people and new

I have seen some topics, like these:

but are a little old and do NOT mention the LLVM backend. If we've got the
LLVM backend in GHC right now, why cannot we just use something like LLJVM
to convert the LLVMIR into JVM bytecode?
I understand that the LLVM bytecode (optained from GHC) has all the
optimizations applied (including tail recursion expansion) so it **could**
be possible to just run it on JVM?

All the best,
Wojciech Daniło
