Haskell is (in a very small part) driving sales of multicore boxes --
I've met half a dozen people who nominated Haskell's multicore support
as a deciding reason to explicit get a multi-core box.

Maybe we need to get some kickbacks from the hardware vendors, for
helping their sales :)

Intel, AMD, Nvidia -- are you guys listening??

In return, we can improve the parallelism support further.
