Create a blog, put it up there, then post a link to the blog on the
I don't think the GHC development list is best for this kind of
discussion, though. I think Haskell-cafe at haskell.org is much better
for discussing your ideas. The GHC team already expressed their
opinion: They will consider it once it's working and the switch will
be easy enough.
That said, I also agree with Simon Marlow in that you really need to
get past the idea stage and produce some code. I've seen so many
great ideas that never made it into an implementation, over half of
the projects on sourceforge are still in the pre-alpha state. It is
perfectly fine to discuss feedback, and gather feedback from people
who tried to implement the same or similar ideas. But it's much
easier to discuss strategies based on a working (if simple) prototype
rather than somewhat vague ideas in someone's head. By trying to
write a prototype you'll also learn things about the problem domain,
that you'd never learn otherwise.

Push the envelope. Watch it bend.
