Based on the little bit of stuff I've done, I think I'd characterize it this
way: C++ will be maybe twice as fast as Haskell. Maybe a little more, maybe
a little less, depending on a lot of details. For heavy computation, Python
will be a couple orders of magnitude slower than both.
IOW, Haskell is slower than C++ but it's in the same ballpark.
Would anyone disagree?
