Well, you've switched back to using unsafe operations there, Donald ;-)

Anyway, before you guys get too narked at me ;-) I'd just like to say that
I'm very impressed by the work that is going on in Haskell.  I wouldnt be
here otherwise.  Haskell stands a very good chance of solving one of the
great unsolved issues at this time, which is: managing threading.

Just dont want you guys to get too complacent ;-) Running benchmarks against
Java and so on is much more motivational than running against g++, because
you can no longer say "oh well Java is faster because it doesnt have a GC!",
because clearly it does; and bounds-checking, and many other useful goodies

So keep up the good work.  I'm quite happy for my tax dollars to be being
spent on Haskell research :-) and I'm really looking forward to seeing what
comes out of it.
