languages); the ensuing thread the follows in discussing that topic.

Is that of any interest besides historical? What advantages does a
haskell implementation offer?
[The main reason people seem to discuss in the thread for various non-C
implementations is better integration with existing systems that aren't
so friendly to C code.]
