Achim, this is simplest code one can imagine. so when Simon will go to
check ghc optimizations, he will try it without any reports. but
Simon, unlike Don, never said that ghc may be compared to gcc. Don, on
the other hand, say this everyday. when he is asked for code that
shows this, he declined to answer. so - why YOU think that ghc
generates fast code and this example is something unusual? can you
provide any *technical* arguments or will continue to make personal
attacks together with Don?
