Rust seems reasonable, but why Haskell? Also why not improve current core while writing new implementation?

We are doing exactly that: we are improving the current core and at the same time modelling the behaviour in Haskell. The Haskell version does not do networking and only represents an executable model of the environment. We use that to test core functionality. See http://toktok.github.io/design/testing.

When I was thinking about contributing to Tox it was way too hard to find out its development is alive at all: https://www.reddit.com/r/projecttox/comments/4vmfhn/is_tox_d...

P.S. Now I see activity in new core repo,that's cool
