No, not arrays. I use Haskell from time to time for about three or four years 
and had succeed not to learn any of array operations at all. That amuses me 
more than anything else.

Thank you for pointers.

Elegant and fast enough toy for number crunching. ;)

I hope I could use some of techniques from your papers (Generating power of 
lazy semantics, for example) in this toy, if I succeed.
