Its slow because some algorithms are O(stupid value). Some operations
(I've been told) would take 100's of years to terminate. That has
nothing to do with Haskell.

Also its not written in Haskell, its written in GHC-Haskell. This
benchmark suite should try where possible to be a Haskell benchmark.
