Test: pidigits (lazy, arbitrary precision integers)
ghc                  3.200    seconds            (1.0 x)
ghci                 3.500    seconds            (1.1 x)
ghc-old              3.600    seconds            (1.1 x)
yhc                  5.740    seconds            (1.8 x)

Would you like ketchup with that? ;)
