I looked at HJScript a while ago. They're imitations of JavaScript,
too low level, I don't want to write JavaScript at all. I could build
ontop of HJScript, though, for a standard library. But I really would
like to forget about JavaScript entirely a la GWT's Java and
Cappuchino's Objective-C and work in some embedded interface
description language.

Personally I'd rather stay within Haskell.

Anyway talk is cheap, I'll chat more about this particular idea once
I've actually something substantial.
