Actually, that is one of the things that is so impressive
about Haskell. It starts at such a high level, with such
beautiful and powerful abstractions. But if needed, you
can optimize down through many layers. All the way
down to what they do on the Shootout, where they
compete against C.

It took a huge amount of effort over many years to
achieve that. DB support still has a long way to go,
but it is great to see that people are working on it
at varying levels of abstraction.
