I don't think anyone is working on it at the moment.
And I'm happy for patches, or maybe it should be another repo (so I can
just concentrate on getting Data.ByteString into the base libs). No

Also, today I checked that Data.ByteString.* runs in hugs (it does),
since its H98 + FFI+ cpp, so now I'm wondering if JHC can compile it...?
