Dear GHC team,

I cannot understand why do you remove the C stage in GHC.
To my mind: let the result be 3 times slower, but preserve the C code.
Because it works everyhere, and there is no real need to rewrite
the same program separately for all the existing processors
(which number may become, for example, 11000). 
I am naive, and am not a specialist. 
But only an invariant program ever has sense.
Has the modern GHC a sensible compilation result level to be observed
(documented?) (graph rewriting code, or like this) ?
