Have you looked at HJScript or jmacro? Any idea what you would do  
differently from those?

This reminds me of another possible solution I thought of. Maybe the  
nicest solution (and a lot of work) would be a new language with a  
compiler that targets javascript but is designed to also interact with  
Haskell and be tolerable to Haskellers. Like HaXe, but different..
