last days i learned details of google's MapReduce system. seems that
this approach is very interesting for dealing with large arrays. files
(arrays) are splitted into chunks, operations are splitted into
chunks, too. afaik, some C compilers are already able to automatically
split vector operations into several threads? at least, it will be
interesting to implement same technique for GHC, may be just in form
of library, like google does
