There is a project (of which I am a member) at Chalmers University of 
Technology that aims to update HaskellDB to work with current versions 
of GHC and Hugs, and on non-Windows platforms. We have an experimental 
version that works under Hugs Nov 2003 and GHC 6.2, using a patched 
version of the HSQL ODBC driver for database access. The code is still 
incomplete, but we are working on it. We will make an announcement when 
we feel that the library is in a usable state.

Happy New Year,
