Hi Mathieu,

yes, I was thinking the same thing. Relying exclusively on GHC's ability to
limit run-time memory consumption feels like an odd choice for this task.
It's nice that this feature exists in GHC, but it's inherently non-portable
and outside of the scope of the language. There really ought to be a better
way to catch an infinite loop that this.

Just my 2 cents
