Programming CNC machines in Haskell

While I like the general idea, it seems this project didn’t go far enough.

What I think would be cool is to develop are DSLs that compile to g-code. For example, putting my hacker hat on, I think it might be fun to build a DSL for describing mechanical (analog) computers, this will compile into g-code for cams, shafts, gears etc. that could then be manufactured using CNC machines and/or 3D printers…
