I see that the Glasgow Haskell compiler has a parallel mode which can be used with PVM and there is interesting work with pH at MIT. Does anyone know of any other work on implicitly parallelizing functional programs for fine grain parallel execution?

Indeed. New tech often needs a "killer app", and for FP parallell
execution might just be it...
