Thanks for all the hints and code provided, nevertheless, it implied
1) Am I right that MemoCombinators can be hardly ever used with hugs? If
not, which guidelines to be used for installation...
2) Is there any paper/tutorial/wiki that describes, which local
definitions/expressions are "discarded"/"not shared" after/"to the next"
computation, that means separated closure is built for them?
