Along the way it will brutally convert all operations on boxed/lifted numeric data to their unboxed equivalents, because I am sick of adding bang patterns to every single function parameter in Repa programs.

There is already one that does this, but I haven't used it.


It's one of the demo plugins, though you need to mark individual functions rather than the whole module (which would be straightforward to add).

The Repa plugin is only supposed to munge functions using the Repa library, rather than the whole module.
