2.1 Compiler plugins for GHC
I plan on helping integrate and maintain compiler plugins for GHC. My work at the hackathon will be to try and get the current patch (allowing you to write Core optimizations) applied to GHC HEAD. Following that, my plan is to extend the functionality, so you can write Cmm passes as well.
There's a wiki-page describing this on-going work: http://hackage.haskell.org/trac/ghc/wiki/NewPlugins
