Thanks for the tips Luke. I didn't think of that. But would doing these
optimizations at runtime be as efficient as using rewrite rules? I know
Yampa uses these GADTs for optimization.

No I won't be able to make such a big optimizer myself - but Paul Liu and
Paul Hudak are working on something like that I think (see the Causal
Commutative Arrows paper). But my code made use of a non-default *** and I
found it odd that it was never called, so I hoped it would be easy to add a
couple of simple rewrite rule so that *** was generated.
