of course it is not language feature - if you will compile by hand, you can
get any performance :)  btw, there is "parallel arrays" project by Manuel
Chakravarty et al, which is oriented toward generating of C-level efficent
programs from pure array computations. but anyway this don't solves all
efficiency problems

15 years ago i preferred asm because C compilers was not smart enough. may
be 15 years later Haskell compilers will also generate asm-quality code.
who knows?.. :)
