There are definitely some gotchas when it comes to performance, mostly in
the realm of inadvertent space leaks and such.
But that's just it, they are gotchas. A new haskeller will no doubt
encounter them, but they are generally simple to fix.
When Haskell and Ocaml are coded by their respective experts, I would, in
general, trust Haskell to be faster.
