My measurements show that
- using strict version of insertWith doesn't improve performance. - in case
of compilation with -O2 flag foldl' also is equal to foldl (-O2 gives approx
2 time impovements).- using RandomGen and State monad to generate a list
gives at least 4 times improvements (on 1 000 000 items).

More complicated improvements (using Array, PRNG and so on) were not tested
by me.
