I really love reading all these Haskell performance papers. :-D

I love knowing about all the cool and clever stuff that gets put into 
GHC to make the code it produces ever faster.

But... when your program runs really slowly, it's still not much 
comfort. :-(

I can't wait to see what stream fusion is going to do to all my list and 
string processing code...
