Not trying to single out this project; more of a general question here.  

Do we really need all of these JavaScript transpilers?  TypeScript, CoffeeScript, Opal, Dart, Pyjamas, the list is a mile long. This isn't even the first Haskell to JavaScript transpiler; there are at least 8 others out there.

For a list of known transpilers you can see here.

Rather than all of this transpiler fragmentation I think the community would be better served if we embraced using JavaScript to it's full extent and helping people to learn how it really works.
