A While ago I tried to write a Haskell version of John Harrops 
ray-tracer benchmark 
(http://www.ffconsultancy.com/free/ray_tracer/languages.html) but the 
performance was not very good (the OCaml version I based it on was at 
least 10x faster).

I would be happy to contribute my code to the benchmark suite if you are 
interested. Perhaps someone can point out obvious speed-ups that I 
missed while trying to improve the performance.
