This sounds like Edward Yang’s work on resource limits:

I don’t think the relevant patches ever made it into GHC.
https://ghc.haskell.org/trac/ghc/ticket/7763 They weren’t rejected either.
It seems like a case that just needs more interested people.

with predictable resources especially  (time and space).
