No-one is writing a commercial Haskell compiler yet (although there is
at least one commercial Haskell-like language). What I mean is, the
amount of "commercial-oriented" funding spent on GHC (as opposed to
the "research-oriented" funding spent by Microsoft Research and various
research bodies) is, as far as I know, zero. Incentives matter. If
there were a commercial Haskell compiler, maybe we would see faster
