Thanks a lot Simon.

Re top-level bindings:

   I agree. There's no good time to force CAFs so they'll need to be
forced on first use.

Re newtypes:

   I agree. Pattern matching on newtypes should be strict.


Where do I get started? I think we looked at some code together during
the call, but I forgot what it was? Any good identifiers to grep for?
