I am looking to suppprt Haskell (OCaml ??) for apache.spark.org. Currently
there is support for programming language "R" which has functional features
(not as rich as Haskell, OCaml, et. al.) and does lazy evaluation. I am
going to drop back and look at the R->Scala/Java implementation BUT I will
also read your link. Any more.suggestions are gratefully welcome.
