Note that DPH is a programming model, but the implementation currently
targets shared memory multicores (and to some extent GPUs), not
distributed systems.

Since GHC 6.10 DPH was in "technology preview" mode (alpha), since 6.12
it is more stable, and more reliable, though significant work is still
happening with the vectorizer in GHC HEAD (so expect even more
reliable performance in GHC 6.14)
