Hi David,

interesting paper (I used the direct address
http://www.cse.unsw.edu.au/~davidt/downloads/ghc-llvm-hs10.pdf )

I like LLVM and enjoyed a lot playing with Concurrent Clean.
So, I hope developers of Concurrent Clean will be interested in merging of
both things.

best regards
Valery A.Khamenya
