I don't think your suggestion is rude at all. In fact, several of us at
Indiana University have been hard at work extending the Par Monad  to
support heterogeneous parallelism across SMP, GPU, and distributed
Our system is called Meta-Par; it's available on hackage , and a
submitted draft paper is available . Ryan Newton also wrote up a
tutorial in a blog post .
Right now the distributed implementation is quite experimental, but the
underlying infrastructure is improving quickly . Hopefully it'll be in
shape to feature in Simon's exciting new project!
