 Thanks very much for that bit of insight.  I am not really writing
anything right now that is in more hurry than what Haskell can handle
nicely.  I was feeling a bit guilty as, Shao said, I use $ over (.)
and thought that my code could get some amount of ridicule as to
style... when it gets a look by guru types.. Now I can just say, "Hey,
it is just my style!"..   I have written things that involved lists,
where it was building and rebuilding lists of some length that took
lots of time.. but that had nothing to do, as you had said with the
syntax I chose to use. it would seem that the big ones are things like
ordering placements to take advantage of tail recursion and such are
more the issue.. and using more efficient data structures than a
"straight" list when appropriate.
   Since you know this sort of thing... Point Free, does that end up
being the exact same code after the compiler gets done with it.. I
assume it must, but ... ?? Does it cause the compiler less or more
work to get to that resultant code.. hmmm
