It's also something I've wondered about, and I'm curious about the  

One of the differences between Haskell and Clean is how side-effects  
are allowed
(Uniqueness Types for Clean, and Monadic I/O for Haskell)

GHC also supports a lot of extensions beyong Haskell98.

Does it explain the difference in performances ? I don't know...

Experts please !
