I started digging into this a few days ago, mainly 
trying to find people interested in the idea.
It's gone reasonably well so far (that is, we haven't
attempted anything really difficult ;-).

Anyone seriously interested could send me an email.
I don't think the erlang-questions list is the right
forum for a discussion, but perhaps we could get a
trapexit forum for it?

There are two tracks btw, one for Haskell-Erlang and
one for Ocaml-Erlang. Each is interesting on its 
own merits.
