Hi Sebastian,

There are literally thousands of problems at http://topcoder.com.  I'm
totally fine with using any of these as a benchmark.

Can you find one that shows off the strengths of Haskell?

> You don't think that multiple agents interacting in a concurrent
setting is representative for real programs? It is, and by simplifying
it down to the core problem, you can test the "difficult bit" far more
easily than if you were to require everyone to write a full-on telecom
operatings sytem, or any other application that's concurrent in the
same style, for each language you want to compare.

Yes, actually that's exactly the problem I have at work that I'm looking for
a solution for.
