"We should forget about small efficiencies, say about 97% of the time:
premature optimization is the root of all evil." 
  - Donald Knuth (paraphrasing Tony Hoare)

Haskell is about improving software quality. A meaningful benchmark
would be one that compares end-to-end software development lifecycles,
including not only runtime performance, but also development costs,
debugging and maintenance time, reliability, etc.
