[Sorry for the delay.]

LLVM is indeed interesting, but has several drawbacks:

- written in C++ (we don't have experience in interfacing Haskell and C++)

- has been used with imperative languages yet, no experience available
  on using it for FP.

- rather large system

- and finally, I have to admit: a bit of Not Invented Here

One of our goals was indeed to have a Haskell-only code generator, which
has the advantage that it is easier to install, use and distribute.
