Hello John,

well, i don't say about me personnaly or someone else. my points is that

1) modern C compilers allows to get close-to-asm performance. Haskell don't
2) fastest Haskell code is very hard to write, much harder than C one

so trying to write fastest possible code in Haskell you lose several
times in both speed of code and speed of development. of course i mean
here best Haskell and C optimization knowledge, personal skills may vary

Best regards,
