I'm curious. Can you be more specific about what you thought
wanted/needed changing in nhc98's VM and/or compiler?

I haven't played around with nhc98 yet, but I was intrigued by its
small size and its (modestly-sized and simple) bytecoded
implementation. Should I now be more interested in Yhc instead? ;-)

I'd like to build a web-publishing framework in Haskell that is
totally self-contained, very portable, and easy to bootstrap ... and
nhc98 or Yhc might be a nice place to start.

Are you documenting your thoughts about the Yhc implementation somewhere?

There's more than one way to do it: the Perl way, and the _right_ way.
