Advanced technology ought to look like unpredictable magic.
My experience with lazy evaluation is such that every time a program is
slower or bulkier than I presumed, it is not arbitrariness, it is
something new to learn.
My experience with GHC is such that every surprise it gives me is a
pleasant surprise: it produces a program faster or leaner than lazy
evaluation would have it. "Where has the box gone?"
