We'll soon (before september, hopefully) relase a deep-embedded
version of ForSyDe which, among other things, has a VHDL backend
(with specific support for Altera's Modelsim and Quartus).
ForSyDe's new implementation is internally based upon the same concept
as Lava (Observable Sharing). However, it has quite a few differences:
* ForSyDe is behavioural (computations are expressed in plain haskell)
* It has support for components
* Is not barely targeted at synchrounous hardware systems (although
the VHDL backend is obviously aimed at them). It has suport for other
MoCs (Models of Computation).
