[Haskell] ANNOUNCE: HNOP 0.1

Incidentally, on my machine the compiled code is 2759360 bytes long unstripped 
and 1491240 stripped.  One has to wonder what all those bytes are doing.  I hope 
this doesn't sound petty; I love haskell and ghc, but 2.8 meg for a no-op 
program seems a bit excessive.

I think the program could also benefit from a configure script and autotools. 
But it's a great start.
