There is parser for Python, written in Semantic (wisent).  As I understand,
it works.  The problem that is left with Python - support for
modules/libraries lookup, etc.

I just remembered, that one men started to implement haskell grammar for
cedet - it's available from http://github.com/hometown/cedet-haskell -- you
can contact with him and discuss questions...
