well, it's what C developers does. just look at full list of C and
Haskell entries for this benchmark - all qualified C programs used std
C/C++ libs, several really optimized entries was disqualified. and
then Don found genious solution to the problem - add this function to
GHC libs. or shootout wasn't first usage of this function?
