It's a rad to be working on an Haskell project for this year's Summer
of Code!

I would like to hug personally every person who spent time on the
project so far -- thank you for volunteering, for the incredible number
of interesting ideas, and for the support! :-)

Google is also doing a great job in recognizing the power of the
language and the community.  Thank you very much.

Hoping to hear from the other students as well, have a joyous Summer!
