I'm very interested in EDSL in high performance
architectures.  Can you give me some idea what the
performance might be using code written in Haskell+EDSL
compared to C/C++?  I think, in high performance computing,
the efficiency in the resulting binary code largely depends
on the problem domain.  Can haskell help a lot in optimizing
the EDSL to machine binary?  And what would be the
efficiency in terms of space and time?
