I'd really like to read such a book! Just hacking on a project [1] for a few
months have tought me a lot about writing high performance Haskell code. I
imagine that one could write a decent size book on the topic by gathering
the experience of a handful of experienced haske, scraping the blogosphere,
and looking at the high performance libraries out there.
