we don't have ghc optimized as good as gcc. when i tell about it, you
tell that i'm not right. then you tell that ghc may be improved in
some future - you don't know exactly. and now you started to watch out
every word i say. well, i can do the same - why you sure that C
optimization was started 20 years before FP optimization? why you sure
that DPH does that i said will be never possible. please answer each
question in detail before trying to critique me. and don't forget that
we still wait from you your great strategy of optimization for C-like
performance using all those fancy DPH/6.8.2 features. or you can only
tell, and tell, and tell but never actually optimized anything?
