The code looks fairly reasonable, although most of your strictness
annotations are unlikely to do much (particularly those on String

You should try profiling this. I can see a few possible problems (such
as reading String from a socket, instead of a ByteString), but it's
difficult to predict what might be causing your code to be so slow.
Haskell code ought to be much more competitive with C for an
application like this.
