>From the first blog post:

>Well, it happens that the CnC notion of a step is a pure function. A step does nothing but read its inputs and produce tags and items as output. This design was chosen to bring CnC to that elusive but wonderful place called deterministic parallelism. The decision had nothing to do with language preferences. (And indeed, the primary CnC implementations are for C++ and Java.) Yet what a great match Haskell and CnC would make! Haskell is the only major language where we can (1) enforce that steps be pure, and (2) directly recognize (and leverage!) the fact that both steps and graph executions are pure.<

Maybe a good enough implementation can be done in D2 too.
