Hmm, I don'tknow of a particularly good STM-in-Haskell benchmark, but
I'd say that the STAMP benchmarks are written in a rather imperative,
object-oriented style. You wouldn't get very meaningful data about
anything if you were to naively translate them to Haskell; you'd
instead have to rewrite them completely (at which point head-to-head
comparisons are difficult).

Good question. Because we tend to eschew mutable state in Haskell,
I'd expect the characteristics of such an application to be *very*
