potential technological idea

I've got around a spare Xilinx Spartan3 FPGA, and on the light that some
people on this list share with me, a respect and liking for interesting
pure-functional programming paradigms, I was wondering if it would make any
sense trying to write a Haskell-ish native processor on it. Hardware
acceleration could take the problems of Haskell inefficient code a long way.

I note though that I'm not any kind of hardware expert (I got that board in
order to learn and play around) so I can't make any promises that it is a
doable thing.
