...but generally not by much.

And for another perspective on speed: Haskell loses tremendously in
the knucleotide benchmark.  As I mentioned previously, even TCL beats
us by a margin of two, and it seems to be the comparatiely
worst-performing benchmark regardless of language I compare to.

Current GHC score is 4.6% ahead of GCC, weigting knucleotide to 0
gives us a 13% lead.

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