can you use perl6 from haskell?by tphyahoo (Vicar)

tphyahoo has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
Since the PUGS implementation of perl6 was written with haskell, I was wondering if it was possible to use perl6ish logic directly from haskell?
I have been learning haskell, it would be nice to be able to leverage my perl knowledge in a haskell context.
The first thing I would like to be able to do is use the =~ s/// regex replacement structure in a haskell program. That would give you in one fell swoop
eg, snipping from the link above:
Well, ok. The above link gives you haskell one liners with PCRE match, but not perl style =~ s/// replace. However, with the ability to access the perl6 regex lib, of course, you would have that too.
It might be slow, I can imagine, but still... cool as hell.
UPDATE: 2 years later, I asked this again at how to hack on pugs in ghci? how to use perl6 regexen and grammars in haskell?
