One mounth ago, when I browsed the documentation of
GHC 6.6 I have found a lot of stuff concerning
paralelism and conncurency. They are relatively new in
the standard and therefore not included in some old
books like Gentle Introduction.

Unfortunately I did not work with ADA - even if I know
it is somehow a standard in France.

I don't actually know.  But the language is so
flexible and so expressive so:
 1) they will be soon available (don't know how soon
:( )
 2) the language is good as a DSL - domain small
languge tool. It means you, or I or anybody (including
all my students - I hope) can quickly implement a
translator in order to port linbraries. Check the
national page Ro - Haskell (on www.haskell.org) for a
quick impresion of how to build a simple language in
one day. There is a presentation there. 
 3) there exist some other interfaces with modules in
other languages ( C seems to be an example.)
Interfacing Haskell with an other language in order to
support existent libraries seems to me to be an
alternative idea.

I suppose the answer is Yes, ther exists libraries,
even a small example somewhere in a page linked from
Haskell-fr. I do not remember where.
Do not hesitate to ask if needed.
