[Haskell-cafe] Message passing library

I believe the primary contenders would be Cloud Haskell [1] and Courier [2].

[1]: http://hackage.haskell.org/package/distributed-process and

[2]: http://hackage.haskell.org/package/courier

Cloud Haskell is probably more widely used. I don't know if they're
leveraging Static Pointers yet, but the feature was motivated in part by
their needs.

We mostly use Pipes, TCP sockets, and Binary but I think you're looking for
something more reliable. Probably someone will recommend ZeroMQ. I'd steer
clear of ZeroMQ unless you have an intimate understanding of it and how to
work around its quirks.
