Shake, a build system written in Haskell

I was skimming through some recent ACM proceedings, and an article caught my eye.

It’s not massively parallel, but it has the central idea of a dynamic dependency graph (allowing dependencies to be added while building) instead of static dependencies a la make.

The Haskell package is here: http://hackage.haskell.org/package/shake
It’s notable for the brevity of its notation.
