I did in fact notice a very nice speedup in 8.4, this explains it.
Finally I know who to thank for it!  Thank you very much for that fix,
it really makes a difference.

Are there more goodies in the 8.0.2 facebook branch, or have they all
made it into 8.4?

As loaded modules seem to consume a lot of memory, I've considered
trying GHC.Compact on them, but haven't looked into what that would
entail.  Have you considered something like that?
