I'd quite like to see some benchmarks for Parsec parsers compiled with 
jhc, I can't help thinking that the optimisations involved would make them

Ivanova is always right. 
I will listen to Ivanova. 
I will not ignore Ivanova's recomendations. 
Ivanova is God. 
And, if this ever happens again, Ivanova will personally rip your lungs out!
