this is where I've gotten to.
strangely enough Ive gotten no speedup at all from the substitution cost
UArray (though I had to make it Int, Int to deal with digits.). But still I
wonder if there's something else I missed. Im really curious what lazyness
you used to go from 60 to 1.6? I always thought lazyness was automatic and
seq made strictness possible.
