Haskell and WinRT

There was a short thread on this in the beginners section a while back. I
think it is an exciting subject and would like to hear what others thoughts
are on it. The Windows 8 metro style apps are built using a new API that is
designed to be exposed to other languages using "language projections" which
are a thin wrapper around the windows runtime. Microsoft has provided these
for C#, C++, Javascript & HTML and is encouraging language developers to
create them for other languages. This seems like it might be the easiest
rout to getting Haskell apps on tablets etc. with a modern UI. Simon Marlow
discusses it briefly on  this
<https://plus.google.com/107890464054636586545/posts/PuFPongpyR4>   page and
there is a video on the topic  here
<http://channel9.msdn.com/Events/Lang-NEXT/Lang-NEXT-2012/The-Windows-Runtime> 
. Might even be a good summer of code project for someone.
