No thanks. Those were not meant to be test cases to add
to a benchmark suite - they were meant to get you thinking a
little more deeply about execution models of Haskell in
general, and the GHC execution model in particular, given
your claim that nubOrd is better than ord is *every* case,
in *every* sense of "better".

But that is a side issue. Everyone agrees with you
that it is useful to add a good implementation of nubOrd to
the standard libraries in some convenient and logical
place. Let's get back to focusing on that.
