I guess it's possible to submit three different Haskell entries (for
GHC, Hugs and NHC).  Perhaps we should split up, and aim for
performance with GHC, memory with NHC and clarity/brevity with Hugs? 

(Seriously, it would be very instructive to look at the differences
between the three versions.) 

If I haven't seen further, it is by standing in the footprints of giants
