I'm glad that my initial post generated such an interesting discussion
but I'm still not understanding why the first version of findAllPath
seems to be computing the whole list even when I just request the
head, while the second one doesn't. I thought that this was
denominated by "findAllPath is strict in its arguments" but it seems
that I haven't used the right terminology to explain what I really
wanted to understand.
