[Haskell-cafe] Data.Array.Accelerate initialization timings

I've seen that method, but I don't see how can I use it for initialization
purposes. It creates Acc (Array e i) from Array e i, but what should I do
while I don't have Array yet? And when Array is already initialized, 'use'
will transfer it to GPU memory which will add some extra timings, but won't
optimize what I have at the moment.
However, I'll try to use it somehow. Maybe I misunderstand the mechanics.
Thanks a lot!
