Rumor says firefox needs profile based optimization to run
faster.  Or it is not a rumor at all.

I guess for all those goodness of haskell, a heavy profile
based optimization should be done and could probably result
in a much faster binary than C++.

    c/*    __o/*
    <\     * (__
    */\      <
